    Forgotten classics from when pop music was still fun.

    No need to humor you. I saw a long version of Mr. Bojangles and knew it was the version describing how the song originated. “Jerry Jeff propositioned the wrong woman at the wrong time... and her husband the bartender called the parish police. Which is how he met Mr. Bojangles.”

    I went through this reading the titles and got to this and hit play. I love this version.

    Hey jarpat, that was amazing! I had heard of Sister Rosetta Tharpe before, but until your post, I never knew just how incredible she was. Amazing energy, and wonderful guitar playing too. That song definitely put many smiles on my face this morning... so thanks, and much appreciated.

    Anyone know what kind of guitar is she playing in that video?

    Take care...

    I'd say it looks like a gretsch, but could it be..?

    You guys there in the U.S. of America have an unbelevieable rich history of many kinds of wonderful music. I'm so glad there's youtube so that we can all over the world enjoy of these. Todays music unfortunately is not so tempting...

    I think it’s a Gretsch Double Anniversary.
    No neck binding, but it has Filtertrons, so it’s post 1957.
    She sure played it well!
