Jukebox Roots: Caldonia - Various Artists

-
Legbamel Not-Pop

Caldonia is one of my all-time favorite songs. I own several versions and have enjoyed a whole lot more at Grooveshark. But when I first posted about Caldonia years ago I didn't have a great widget where you could enjoy the song for yourself.

Today I offer you fifteen full versions of the song from BB King, James Brown, Willie Nelson, Gatemouth Moore, Albert Collins, and lots more. If that doesn't fulfill your Caldonia quota you can find more all over the place. Someday I'll write a whole article about the song but for today just know that this blues standard deserves its place in the canon of the genre. Enjoy!
