Artist: Golden Animals Track: "Beautiful Stranger Blues" Album: Through the Wilderness Listen

According to Golden Animals' scribbled explanation, the band recorded this song to appear on a tribute record to Madonna. Research yielded a song called "Beautiful Stranger" recorded by the former pop star; further research found that Madonna's version, and the techno remixes that followed, are just awful.

Don't worry, though: The version from this California outfit is raw rock and blues. It sounds like something that might turn up on a bonus disc of a reissue of Bob Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited.
