Thursday Morning Music Shuffle – Pardon Me, Sir Mix

Sorry for there not being a music shuffle yesterday, but I was incarcerated indisposed or something like that,  but I’m back at it – albeit later than usual – today.
Rainy morning.  Once again, dealing with my play lists  being unavailable, but one cover did come up today.
I just finished watching “The Runaways” movie, and went digging around and came up with this gem or a cover.  Joan Jett covers The Minutemen er I mean Creedence Clearwater Revival’s song Have You Ever Seen the Rain? from her Hit List album which also features a Door’s Cover and a cover of The Sex Pistol’s Pretty Vacant.
Next up is the late, great Etta James’ classic song – At Last. Got me thinking about the parallels in the life of these two amazing women of  music.
Next we have The Avett Brothers with a song from the Four Thieves Gone called Left On Laura, Left on Lisa  which echoes the sentiment of the Nick Lowe song, All Men Are Liars.
And finally, come on you knew we couldn’t let another day go by with another track from Band of Week alum’s MAKAR’s album Funeral Genius – So Slow is that song.
