Welcome back! It’s time to announce results for the Sept. 15 BOTB post
BATTLE OF THE BANDS (BOTB), hosted by Far Away Series and StMcC Presents Battle of the Bands. is where you listen to different recordings of the same song and vote for the one you like best. Two “Battles” per month, on the 1st and 15th. Votes will be tallied and posted the following week.
This song has long been a favourite of mine and I’m a fan of all three artists shown. After so many lop-sided battles, I wanted to find a pairing that would be closely contested and this did not disappoint! The lead passed from John to Jeff and back again numerous times, currently sitting at 12 to 11 for Jeff. This is the first time my vote could decide the outcome. so here goes….
Confession time: I’m a John Kay super fan(atic) and his voice always gives me chills! He’s one of my musical heroes, along with John Lennon and Eric Burdon. Much as I love Jeff Healey’s version and the Road House movie, I choose John Kay & Steppenwolf. Which means….
THE WINNER IS:
JOHN KAY & STEPPENWOLF / THE JEFF HEALEY BAND
12 votes each!
That was fun! Let’s see how close the next one will be.
Here are the co-winners. John from “Live in Louisville” and Jeff from “Road House”:
