Here's a singer I couldn't find squat about online. Wanda Davis. Believe me, I tried. After hearing her cover of Leadbelly's "Where Did You Sleep Last Night?" I went digging. I ran into her Facebook page and a couple more songs, and that's about it. But she's now on my radar, I will be digging further. For now, check the two cuts below, a cover of Aretha's "Save Me" from 1970 (some kind of funky drummer on that one), and the Leadbelly cover from 2003, with a guitarist that's listened to the first Creedence LP more than a few times, and some wicked, super spooky horns. It's soaked with doom. Now the hunt continues.
