This is where I cut out. I ran into a Lou Rawls song, THE Lou Rawls song. If you know only one Lou Rawls it's "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine". It's a good song, a superb voice, but, you know, over played to the point that you stop listening. Because that song was so familiar, and the only song I knew, Rawls was always on the back shelf. Then a friend of mine was over, someone I rarely see. We were watching a ball game and talk came to music, He started going off about Lou Rawls's voice. From anyone else I might not have been attentive, but this was the person who turned me onto Bobby Blue Bland decades earlier. Fuck yeah I listened. Then, the Dirtbombs covered Rawls's "A Natural Man". Yet another endorsement from someone with respectable taste. Yes, Lou Rawls is now on the list. The Bud shirt is his street cred.
