Originally from Beaumont, Texas, the sixty-eight year old has a long and interesting career, including touring with just about every legendary soul act of the sixties, and having one of her songs [“Oh Baby (We’ve Got A Good Thing Goin'”] recorded by the Rolling Stones. Tonight she is backed by Lil’ Buck Sinegal and the Top Cats. I don’t know much about them, so I’ll reprint this form the invitation I received:
Lil Buck Sinegal is a veteran of Clifton Chenier’s band and one of south La’s best guitar players. He has reformed his original powerhouse soul band from the 1960’s- the Top Cats- which includes Hammond B-3 organ maestro Stanley “Buckwheat Zydeco” Dural.
The event is presented by the Ponderosa Stomp Foundation, who are endlessly awesome.
Here’s Ms. Lynn performing her hit “You’ll Lose a Good Thing,” in the early sixties.
