YouTube - ‪Tracy Chapman - Fast Car‬‏


YouTube - ‪Buckwheat Zydeco - On A Night Like This - Live -1989‬‏


YouTube - ‪The Laughing Song - George W. Johnson‬‏

The last is more for historical interest as he was apparently the "First Negro star of the phonograph." I get the sense it might be a bit embarrassing for our era and the quality isn't great. I think I read he died in 1914, which music that old is often poorly preserved.
