    Yes, we're all dead tired of RHCP cover-covers. This ain't that.
    I was looking for a version of Higher Ground that I heard on the radio - female singer accompanied by Leo Kotke-esque slide guitar.
    Didn't find it but found this - and I thought it was very, very cool.
    BTW, if anyone knows the artist I was originally looking for, please let me know.

    Very cool!

    Though I must say - and it's probably a generational thing - that Stevie Wonder is the first thing that comes to mind for me when I think of "Higher Ground." I'd love to hear the above arrangement with the bass hooked up to a really good envelope filter, preferably an original Mu-Tron III like Stevie used on his clavinet.

    Ellen McIlwaine, from The Real Ellen McIlwaine (Kot'ai 1975) - I love that version:


    Oh, and she accompanies herself, as can be inferred from the pic. :)

    She's pushing with the vocals a bit but I like his take on the bass line.

    AWESOME! Thanks. I thought whomever it was might be accompanying themselves but had no idea.

    @FilterFunk Stevie IS the first person who comes to mind for Higher Ground. His dang song, and he OWNS it.
     
    FilterFunk and HaphAsSard like this.
  6. The singer...not so much. But I could listen to his bass track by itself all day.
