Saturday Matinee – Soupy, The Shining (Beta Version), Muddy Trucks, Haywire McClintock, Gatemouth Brown


[In Memoriam: Soupy Sales 1926-2009.
Here’s  Soupy’s last Birthday Party.]

I remember playing this for minutes on end.
[Found at HappyToast.]

What do rural teenagers do when there’s no satellite access? This.

THE classic hobo song performed by Harry “Haywire” McClintock. According to the Wikipoids, the song dates to a 1928 sheet music copyright by one “Billy Mack.” Prior to the widespread availability of recorded discs, most of the money to be made was in selling sheet music for parlor pianos.

McClintock sued for copyright infringement and lost, yet the song is usually attributed to McClintock anyway.

We’re gonna skip the history of country music, bluegrass and blues, and jump right into Clarence Gatemouth Brown’s “Okie Dokie Stomp,” originally recorded in 1954. (Song starts after a brief interview.) Not impressed? Then check out “Pressure Cooker” previously posted here.

  1. Tony Says:

    That’s one fun mudhole

  2. planetross Says:

    I wonder if that kangaroo could hop through that mudhole.

    I thought Big Rock Candy Mountain was a Burl Ives song: I’m not going to trust that snowman in the Christmas special anymore.

  3. Bunk Strutts Says:

    Tony– When I watched it all I could think about was the humidity, mosquitos and ticks. I’m surprised that their electrical systems didn’t short out.

    plane– After seeing what he did to the woman on the curb, I’d push him. As for BRCM, Tom Waits “sang” part of it in the film “Ironweed.”
