TRIPLE TAKE ON BBS!!

This week on Blues Before Sunrise it’s Triple Take! We do this one every once in a while. We'll ferret out a group of popular tunes - so popular in fact that they were recorded by a variety of different artists. All of this week's tunes were recorded by at least three different artists because we'll be playing three different versions of the same tune. It's fun and interesting – No really!! Triple Take - Only on BBS!!
