Saturday Matinee – Lokotv, Cheers, Buddy Guy & GE Smith, Kid Ramos, Flo & Eddie

by

Odd.  Consider it a cartoon before the main feature.

Best opening sequence for Cheers without the cloying theme song.

Buddy Guy talks about how his career began with a salami sandwich.  True rags-to-riches story. (G.E. Smith backing.)

I was prowling for some early Thunderbirds when I found a name I’d forgotten about.  Here’s Kid Ramos and Los Fabulocos cranking on “Burnin’ the Chicken” in New Braunfels, Texas, 21 March 2009.

This is the funniest version of Dylan’s “It Ain’t Me, Babe.”
The Turtles made a mockery of  pop love songs, but created a decent string of hits anyway. Flo and Eddie eventually joined Frank Zappa’s Mothers.  (Mrs. Strutts pointed out that Eddie dances the Freddie at the end of the clip.)

    Buddy’s always been one of my favs. He usually sells out here in the Burgh, comes at least once a year.

    cbull– Guy’s one of the original Delta legends that made it to Chicago where the blues recording companies thrived. Check out Cobra Records’ line up: Magic Sam, Willie Dixon, Otis Rush, Buddy Guy, wow. Even Ike Turner started out there.

    Buddy Guy had an excellent tribute to SRV, with Double Trouble backing, on Austin City Limits in 1991 or so. Unfortunately the Utoobage caved and the video isn’t available anymore. Bastards.
