From sweet and smooth classics, to new names, to old names with new music...the focus here, is to shine a little light on some damn fine music.

I'll find it. You can listen, review, or tell me I wouldn't know good music if it kicked me in the ass. I personally don't give a shit.

Paying Taxes Today

Thought maybe we should do a nice cover song today.  Since we are definitely into tax season, what better song to cover than "Taxman."

Written by George Harrison and first appearing on the 'Revolver' album, for my money you can't find a better cover version than the one done by Stevie Ray Vaughn. Going from one guitar great to another, George's legacy is definitely not lost on Stevie Ray.

For comparison today, we will go with both studio versions.

The Beatles "Taxman"
Stevie Ray Vaughn "Taxman"

Tasty indeed, have a bite before the taxman takes it all.
