thats a good piece imo. You find alot of blues tunes deal with shady issue's like sex, murder drugs etc yet on the surface they sound so innocent yet when you look a bit deeper into the words they deal with all types of shady things

Its only maybe sneaks in as blues, but Dinah Washingtons 'Big long sliding thing' or for that matter Saffire's 'Middle Age Blues' are both prime pieces of filth. Love those dirty old blues chicks.

I have a Dana Gillespie 12". It's called "Below The Belt", and bless her, it never once wanders above it :mrgreen:
