Slim Harpo--Don't Start Crying Now

Slim Harpo (aka James Moore) was the author of several songs that became popular Rock N' Roll covers.   His classics "King Bee", "Rock Me Baby", "Tip On In" and "Baby Scratch My Back" have been covered by such Classic Rock legends as Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones and Jefferson Airplane.

However, I have always been particular to this upbeat, toe-tapping number "Don't Start Crying Now" that as far as I know has not been covered by anybody.  Take a listen by clicking below.



Since I'm certain that you like this song as much as me, you will not be able to resist the pull of the link below and buy it.  Afterall, it is only 99 cents.

  1. Van Morrison does a good version. He did originally as a member of "Them".

    But I agree, nobody does it better than the original artist.
