From The Archive November 5, 2022 – Billy Jones Bluez – “Papa Was A Rolling Stone”

Thanks Marty, I have so much fun doing From The Archives for Arkansas Roots.

Billy Jones is a bluesman. A genuine Arkansas bluesman. But he also plays country, funk, gospel, and soul. When I went to record him at KASU Bluesday Tuesday in Newport, Arkansas, on October 8, 2013, I never thought he would be playing the Temptations. Yet here’s the proof, Billy Jones Bluez playing the classic Motown hit, “Papa Was A Rolling Stone”.


And that’s “Papa Was A Rolling Stone”, a Temptations hit, played by Billy Jones Bluez at a KASU Bluesday Tuesday in Newport.
