I Ain't Superstitious

Today's Friday the 13th so here are a couple superstitious track for you superstitious sorts...

Let's be careful out there today!

Howlin' Wolf: I Ain't Superstitious

Taken from the 1971 London Howlin Wolf Sessions featuring Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts from the Rolling Stones and Steve Winwood. While generally panned by blues purists, this album was one of my first introductions to The Wolf and still one of my favorites.

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '77: Superstition

For most of the second half of the '60s, Sergio Mendes was the top-selling Brazilian artist in the United States, charting huge hit singles and LPs that regularly made the Top Five. Here he is with his 1977 Brasil incarnation performing one of three Stevie Wonder covers found on Vintage '74.
