I was listening to Z.Z. Hill's version of the Chokin' Kind the other day and decided to dig out Joss Stone's cover from her first album which was released when she was fifteen or something. I couldn't find it in my itunes, so searched through the cds but to no avail, must have got bored with it and given it to someone before I even uploaded it.
Anyhow, I still wanted to listen to it as I remember being pretty impressed with it at the time so went on to YouTube where I found the video below which just about blew me away. If only the girl had continued with the soul and not been manoeuvred down the road to copying American R&B, as her voice knocks Adele's into touch and is right up there with Amy Winehouse's.
