Saturday Matinee – The Stones, Otis Redding and Bette Midler


Phil reminded me of this classic from “Some Girls,” one of my favorite Stones albums. We played that album so often that if you held it up to the light you could see through it.  (It’s also a shame that our crack team of webminers had to  go to a Russian website to find Мик Джаггер и Кит Ричардс из этого шоу субботу вечером, что было жить из Нью-Йорка.)

So why stop there?  Here’s a more recent version of “Shattered”  from the same album.

From the album “Tattoo You,” the song “Waiting on a Friend”  goes back to 1970, and I’m not even gonna comment on what Mick is wearing.

Otis Redding couldn’t get no satisfaction, even with Steve Cropper, Duck Dunn and the Memphis Horns backing him up.

Bette Midler’s take on “Beast of Burden” was excellent.

Have a great weekend, folks.

    phil– Bette Midler is a classic. Pinch away! One of my favorites is a duet she recorded with Tom Waits on his “Foreign Affairs” album, “I Never Talk To Strangers.”

    “Shattered” is one of my alltime favourite Stones’ songs.

    It looks like Keith Richards is apprenticing a replacement … just in case he doesn’t make the next tour. hee hee!

    plane– Hunter S. Thompson “interviewed” Keith Richards years ago. It needed subtitles.
