Saturday Matinee – A.B. & the D., C.T.A., B.G., and Dan

Archie Bell & the Drells doin’ the “Tighten Up.”  No lip synching there.

Chicago Transit Authority from 1970. Chicago was a lot of funk and whiteboy soul and I loved this band before it got all weeny. They were cool, even after “Color My World,” the slow-dance-rubbing-anthem for teenagers everywhere.  (Janessa Vapors was in great demand whenever it was played.)

“Sweet Home Chicago,” a Robert Johnson song, as performed by Buddy Guy in the Elmore James style. I might be mistaken, but it looks like the late Stevie Ray Vaughan‘s band Double Trouble is backing him up.  Dan Aykroyd & John Belushi’s “Blues Brothers” resurrected the song, but dedicated it to Magic Sam.

Now for something completely differnet. At the TR board meeting today, we discussed whether or not we should allow/encourage submissions of links to the Utoobage that demonstrate the various talents of our Loyal Readers.

The answer was a solid but wavering YES.

So here’s our first submitutante, Dan, who knows how to shred a guitar and doesn’t mind posting it on the Utoobage.  Note that he’s torn the head off his electromo-gitfiddle since it was obviously in his way.

What kinda man follows Tacky Raccoons? Well, there you go. If anyone else would like to contribute, post your hidden talents, toss us some emailage and maybe we’ll give you some pro-bono face time.

Your pal,
