It’s Friday.  This means I feel good and thus, you should too. 

Whether you love Jesus or not, The Statesmen Quartet should make you happy.  Why?   Lotsa reasons.  Great singers….charismatic….influential….should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the Early Influence category.  Oh yes they should.  Where do you think Elvis learned a lot of his Elvis-isms?  From Jake Hess, Hovie Lister and the Big Chief, yes indeedy.

Watching this makes me wish there were more menfolk running around with those Zorro kinda mustaches the Statesmen had.  They was stylin’.

I dig. (I also dig the way you can watch other videos in an embedded video by the same artist. Cool.)
