I <3 Irma Thomas

Posted by on Wed, Nov 21, 2012 at 2:54 PM

Like my obsessive love for Ms. Barbara Lynn, I also lerve Ms. Irma Thomas. Her track, "What Are You Trying To Do,"...a solid dancer, just fucking sails.

Ms. Thomas has had a long career and her huge catalog has inspired the greats, the Rolling Stones become greater via her "Time Is On My Side" and then gave a contemporary cover band the Detroit Cobras some jump via her 'B' side "Breakaway." My other fave track, er...I dig both sides of this 45, is the crushingly DEEP side..."Two Winters Gone", the flip to the bouncing should'a-been-a-hit track Somebody Told You." Godamn, godamn.

Irma Thomas is the Queen, I love her so much. Her show was so great at the Triple Door this summer, we stuck around for the second set and had our minds blown.

Bump this shit, Nipper. So good.
