I was looking for something special to post for this May Day.  I couldn't find anything in my own life that seemed worthy.  I had a doctor appointment, I went to the library, I took a nap.  Not much there.

So I started looking around You Tube for a suitable video.  Nothing relating to May Day really got to me.  Then I thought of a video my (new) friend Ronaldo Stainforth had posted one day on Facebook.  I searched for awhile and finally found it so here it is.  The amazing Joss Stone.  Thanks again, Ronaldo.

(Oh, and turn up your sound.  Way up.)


  1. She certainly has a presence on stage. Very nice.

  2. I've always thought she had soul and grit beyond her young years.

  3. How unusual is that! A very good singer using real musicians! The lead guitar was in the way a bit, but the rest of them were spot on!
    Checked out the 'Velvet Fog' too. Who was the guitar player?

  4. Reminds me a little of the great Janis.

  5. I agree with Steve...I immediately noticed a strong resemblence to Janis Joplin. And you're right, Joss is AMAZING!


  6. Stafford - It's only a guess but I'm thinking Barney Kessel.

    Steve and Scott - Ms. Stone has been compared to Janis Joplin many times. She has the same snarl yet the same clear high notes.

  7. You always make us hear some beautiful voices! Thks.
