"Dance With You" by Eugene "Hideaway" Bridges
I was driving along, listening to the "Bluesville" channel on SiriusXM, when they played a song, "Dance With You" by an unfamiliar artist named Eugene Bridges. It sounded so retro that I figured it was just a cover of something turned out in the 60's by an R&B artist like Solomon Burke or even Sam Cooke. But when I looked it up online, it appears to be an original. I can't believe anyone is still creating songs like this anymore. I couldn't find a file of the song itself to embed, but the song can be sampled and purchased on Amazon ( http://www.amazon.com/Dance-With-You/dp/B004YFC9FQ ), iTunes, etc. Since the artist is somewhat obscure, I thought he deserved a little shout-out for helping to keep a genre alive.
