Beatles Song Of The Week

This week we would like to feature a cover version of “It Don’t Come Easy” that we heard on The Current earlier this week.  Bettye LaVette has been in the music industry for 50 years, scoring her first Top 10 R&B hit in 1962 at age 16.  Here she is performing a lovely blues rendition of Ringo’s 1971 smash hit.

And here’s a bonus video of Bettye’s classic “Let Me Down Easy.”  Listen to that voice and consider that she was only 19 when she recorded it.
