Editor's note: coming from a truly ignorant stance on the musical since I've never seen/heard it, I thought, the soul version will be much better. GD right it is! I finally decided to listen to parts of the original right before typing this, knowing all too well that it would be gawd-awful and it is. Cheesy, though not very blasphemous except in a few parts, and very contrived sounding. Like you were trying to offend in an offhanded way by pretending to be one thing while hiding the Judas side of your act in check. The soul version is the TRUE version, brothers and sisters! It rocks. It titillates. It moves you to seek out the ceiling. It makes your foot twitch even after you're done dancing. I knew this was a winner when I found it down in Nashville in a Goodwill store covered in dust. The lady at the register said, "I bet this is worth some money." "I doubt it." I said, "I'll be happy if just plays." Man, oh man, does it!
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
