Many thanks to the 30 contestants in Acoustative contest - new one coming up soon

Entry for Stage 3 Blues category

While I enjoy listening to blues music, the genre is way out of my comfort zone but I decided to step out and belt one anyway to see how 'blue' I could get.

"I Pity the Fool" is a soul blues song originally recorded by Bobby Bland in 1961. It entered the Billboard's Hot R&B Sides chart where it reached #1 as well as reach appeared at #43 in the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. . After its release as a single, it became one of Bland's biggest hits and most identifiable songs. Subsequently, several artists have recorded renditions such as The Manish Boys (with David Bowie) in 1965, Stevie Wonder in 1967, Ann Peebles in 1971 and Robert Cray with Shemekia Copeland whose version was released on Martin Scorsese Presents The Blues (2003).

The backing track is one of my contributions to the CS. Come visit my CS thread for my uploads, click on banner:

Wow! Two more legends, Mac Davis and Helen Reddy died yesterday, Sept 29, 2020.

This one is a different version than the one MLP recorded a few years ago. You are smokin' on this, Irene. I was going to post mine with ML, but I think I'll wait until next week. People really have to hear this!
