ETTA JAMES & SUGARPIE DESANTO - IN THE BASEMENT


I've been wanting to feature this one for SO long but for whatever reason I feel as though I've been keeping it "in my back pocket"; it's a real favorite for sure!

A description can't do any justice to the fire in the grooves on this track.

from 1966...

IN THE BASEMENT PART 2

...and here's my band's take on "In The Basement", with lead vocals by my wife Angeline!

there are two different mixes of this song...the other is an album version?

it has 'party noise' in the background, and is missing the xylophone and tasty guitar lick at the beginning..probably a few other details are different as well, i haven't listened all that closely..

anyway, this mix is better...now i know to pickup a copy if i see it...

thanks..

this is a classic. two quite spectacular singers. I would have loved to see them in the studio together.

I've always wanted to know what was on the b-side in the basement part 2. Was it an instrumental version of the song or was it a continuation of part 1. Could Derek or anyone please tell me? From johnniek@slingshot.co.nz
