I wasn't sure about this, as I'm not at all a Joss Stone fan, but it's got a very persuasive rhythm to it and so it's grown on me :

Tonight on BBC4 9.15 - 10.45pm :

The Old Grey Whistle Test: 70s Gold :
Archive performances from the BBC music series, featuring Elton John, David Bowie, Captain Beefheart, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Curtis Mayfield, New York Dolls, Bob Marley and the Wailers, Brinsley Schwarz, Gil Scott Heron, Blondie, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, the Jam, Talking Heads, Iggy Pop, Cher and Greg Allman, Argent, Steppenwolf, Lindisfarne, Dr Feelgood and Johnny Winter.

Obviously bits of it are going to be desperately Sh*te (Elton John and Gladys Knight don't really float my boat, and I never really 'got' Capt Beefheart), but there's some Good Stuff there.

Well I enjoyed most of it - I missed the start, but caught Vinegar Joe (Elkie Brooks and Robert Palmer) and was reminded of going to see the Patti Smith Band at St Albans Civic Hall and being amazed at just how Utterly SH*TE they were !

Seems like a long time since I fed the jukebox, so here goes with an odd one - I remember the Rezillo's version, but until yesterday I'd never heard the Fleetwood Mac original ;

I don't think that The Blues gets any better than this!

Just being old doesn't make it a "Classic."

Aaaah! Nostalgia is not what it used to be!
