Shout! Sister Shout!

I was listening to a little Rosetta Tharpe and stumbled across this excellent video.

I first heard of her from my Dad. One of his dying wishes was for some Lucky Millinder, who i was clueless, absolutely clueless about. I finally found a couple of disks which credited Rosetta Tharpe as a singer. I thought that was very odd b/c what I did know of her was as a gospel singer and Lucky Millinder is about as far from gospel as you can get. Years later I picked up "The Gospel of the Blues" and the tribute "Shout Sister Shout" and you will see by this video that this woman knows what she is doing...and that's before you get to the guitar solo!
