best version ever

By probably the best jazz/blues/pop music singer ever.  But, of course, there was Aretha.

This is a performer that I would love to hear live.  This was just a random video I was recommended due to the AI gods.

So open the link in a browser. Then copy what is in the address bar. That is a good URL.

Because mocowgirl and GregTx don't identify their choices in text along with the YouTubes I don't know if I might be repeating any that they posted, and although I have access to most of these songs on the two websites I have access to here I won't bother to provide links because one requires you to watch a short commercial first and the other breaks in with an interfering page requiring you to delete it and re- click the arrow to continue watching the rest of the song.  However you are bound to find these songs on YouTube. 

It shouldn't be a surprise that I would choose folk songs.   Save for the Carter Family and Woody Guthrie I have watched all the others perform live and met most of them personally.  The images of all the other performers are as they were when I first met them personally or watched them perform live.

Pretty much anything Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits ever did.

Lucky enough to see them live a few times. Amazing shows! Pure music!

Saw Dire Straits as a hard core rock band and a sit down acoustic band. Both good.
