    Tonight it is Joe Satriani's "If I Could Fly"
    But other nights it could be John Lee Hooker's "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer"
    Then the next it could be Duke Ellington and John Coltrane's "In a Sentamental Mood" or Nina Simone's "Feeling Good"

    James Yorkston (Scottish Folk Singer) is also great whiskey music.
    Jeremy, if you're coming to the sampler let me know and I'll bring some Robin Lange, he's my favorite Scottish folk/whisky singer/.

    Re: Have a favorite song to listen while sipping?

    I always liked Mandy (Barry Manilow's song), what can I say.

    But right now I've got one of the reissued Creedence Clearwater Revival albums on, loud. The catalogue has been re-mastered this year with bonus tracks.

    On Bayou Country, they've added a song from a '69 Fillmore West show called Crazy Otto. It's a blues, fairly lengthy, with great chord work and psychedelicized solos. Amazing, heavy stuff.

    Whenever I hear Funkadelic, I think back to the TV show "The White Shadow", and the episode when the touring Soviet Union team comes to Carver High. During a scene by the water fountain (Admission here. I have referred to the Internet for the actual details):

    Russian Player (Trying to be friendly, "hip", and topical): "We very much like your Elton John in my country."

    Jackson: "Well, I'm into Funkadelic myself!" (He then cuts in and slurps a drink from the water fountain.)

    Russian Player (Looking bewildered and soooo out of touch): "Funka-what??"

    I was a senior in high school when that aired. 28yrs ago. I still remember it. I remember the guys (mostly white) on our high school baseball team howled with laughter at the line for weeks! It became "the line" du jour. I wonder why it resonated so much with us then, and me to this day?

    Tonight, a great cover by a great band, CCR doing Cotton Fields:

    And now, amazingly almost 40 years later, John Fogerty doing the same song:

    Which do you prefer? I love both.
