from Oannes *
Μια από τις εκπληκτικότερες φωνές που έχουν ηχογραφηθεί ποτέ είναι αυτή της gospel τραγουδίστριας & κιθαρίστριας Sister Rosetta Tharpe, γνωστής ως Godmother of Rock’n’Roll για την επιρροή της σε καλλιτέχνες όπως οι Little Richard, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis.
Την ακούμε εδώ στο δικό της “How far From God” , συνοδευόμενη από τους Sam Price Trio.
One of the most amazing voices ever recorded is that of gospel singer & guitarist Sister Rosetta Tharpe, known as the godmother of rock’n’roll for her influence on artists such as Little Richard, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis.
We hear her on her own “How Far From God” , accompanied by the Sam Price Trio.
❝ Well I look down the road and I wondered
Yes, I wondered, oh Lord, I wondered
I look down the road and I wondered
Just to see how far, see how far I was from God
And I buckled up my shoes and then I started walking
And I started walking, oh, I started walking
I just buckled up my shoes and I started walking
Just to see how far I was from God
Now I used to, used to have some playmates
I used to have, use to have some playmates
I used to have some playmates
To walk and talk, walk and talk with me
But ever since I, since I received a blessing
Oh, I received a blessing, I received a blessing
Ever since I received a blessing
Oh, my so called friends, they turned their back on me
I look down the road, look down the road and I wondered
Oh yes, I wondered, oh yes, I wondered
I look, I look, I look down the road and I wondered
I wondered to see how far, how far that I was, was from God
One more time
Oh, and I wondered, oh, I wondered
I wondered, oh, I wondered
Just to see how far I was from God ❞
As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song!
* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. • Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
