I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com

The Rev. Al Green w/ "Let's Stay Together"
Some whiny song I barely remember.
"Turn The Music Into Gold" no idea who did that one.
"Lucky Star" wish I didn't know who did this. Let's refer to her as "Punkin' Head" as she paid to look that way.
2 by Kermit T. Frog. The major weed dealer in my home town was named Kermit. RIP you kept a lot of people happy at wholesale prices.
"Band of Gold". I don't know who did this one but watching my sister and her friends sing it into hair brushes made it a favorite.
Neilo with "Heart of Gold". You're sounding real good tonight BS.
"Like a Rainbow" Those guys were pretty popular.
Sugarloaf w/ "Green Eyed Lady" Stay away from my wife, you SOB's!
George Thorogood and The Delaware Destroyers w/ their cover of John Lee Hooker's classics "House Rent Boogie" and "One Bourbon, One Scotch And One Beer" not up to John Lee's standards but pretty fly for a white guy.
The Big E, with "Good Luck Charm"
"Rainbow in The Dark" not sure who did this hair metal tune.
Louis Armstrong and his Band with "When The Saints Go Marchin' In."
Dunno who that was. Or the next one.
