Saturday Matinee – Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Amy Winehouse and The Contours

Saturday, 13 February 2016

The Ghost of Sam Cooke lives, and Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats prove it. Let the good times roll.

The late Amy Winehouse did an interesting cover of Sam Cooke’s “Cupid.” What a talented mess she was.

The Contours knew how to dance a love song.

That’ll do it for a St. Valentine’s Day Eve edition of the Saturday Matinee. See you back here tomorrow, lovers.

The Saturday Matinee – Mississippi Fred McDowell, Roscoe Holcomb & The Dixie Hummingbirds

Mississippi Fred McDowell‘s version of Bukka White‘s “Shake ‘Em On Down.” (This version is hot, too.)

Roscoe Holcomb plays “Graveyard Blues.” Pure Appalachian finger style guitar. So where can we go from here? Oh wait. I know.

The Dixie Hummingbirds are one of the greatest soul Gospel groups ever, with a track record dating to 1928. We’re all on God’s Radar whether you accept it or not, and that’s a wrap for this edition of the Saturday Matinee.
