She’s got that Go-Go Power: Happy birthday, Sugar Pie Desanto.

These first two clips feature Hubert Sumlin, famous for his work with Howlin’ Wolf and one of my Top Ten guitarists ever, absolutely killing it, PLUS Willie Dixon, Sunnyland Slim and Clifton James! What a band!



A monster dancer, where Sugar Pie shares vocals with Etta James…


She’s gonna be a party poppin’, show stoppin’, wig floppin’ witch for a night!


Still looking and sounding fantastic into the 21st Century…


Watch her get down!

Not sure what the status is on this documentary, but I’m damn glad to see Sugar Pie get the love she deserves.
