If you had guessed by looking at this gorgeous womyn that she was a handful of blues, you’d be correct. She’s a hard livin’ womyn. It was some deep blues. Deep Saturday night blues ~that I bet will end up in my top 30 albums. My husband also was impressed and adds “She’s the kinda womyn that would drink you under the table, sing about how yah done her wrong and then beat the hell outta yah. Not necessarily in that order.” from WIKI: KoKo Taylor (September 28, 1928 – June 3, 2009) was an American Chicago blues musician, popularly known as the “Queen of the Blues.”She was known primarily for her rough, powerful vocals and traditional blues stylings. She was a grammy award winning blues singer who put out 18 albums and was a huge influence of Janis Joplin. Thanks Barb!
