Jo Ann Henderson

Jo Ann Henderson Baby Please Don't Go


Jo Ann Henderson was a Jazz Blues singer from the late 1940’s early fifties.

This record was updated by the Northern Ireland group Them in 1965 with Van Morrison singing lead vocals. It was a standard that many blues artists used to sing including Muddy Waters and Joe Turner. It reached number ten in the UK pop charts And was a very good version with excellent guitar and organ work. This version by Jo Ann Henderson is more of a jazz treatment and if you didn’t know her voice, you could swear it was Shirley Bassey!

The song by THEM was used as the intro To Ready Steady Go a TV show about pop culture in the UK in the Sixties.
