Judy Roderick, Rock me Baby. Woman Blue (1965).

Often forgotten in the pantheon of female blues vocalists, Judy Roderick remains one of the seminal talents of her time. Here, her take on ‘Rock me Baby’ is a good example of what she was capable of. Most of her songs have a folksy vibe but with a voice like that, it hardly matters.
