Stagger Lee - Taj Mahal and Others

Legbamel Not-Pop

I've been compiling a page on Stagger Lee, or Stack O'Lee, and have listened to a few dozen interpretations today. They range from Mississippi John Hurt's blues version to The Fabulous Thunderbirds with their sax and back-up vocals to a Tom Jones lounge-ified croon to Ike and Tina Turner rockin' out. That, of course, means that my posting time has been otherwise spent. In order to show that I still love you, I'm posting a couple of versions of the song that I particularly enjoyed.
