Saturday Matinee – Billy Joel, The Temptations, Aretha Franklin, King Curtis, Booker T & The M.G.’s

All of Billy Joel’s Greatest Hits. Just like they were meant to be.

The Temptations’ 1970 hit “Ball of Confusion” has one of the best lines ever: “Vote For Me and I’ll Set You Free.” [via SADM].

According to Joel Whitburn’s Top Pop Singles, the top artists of 1970 were Neil Diamond and Aretha Franklin. Let’s go with some Aretha:

Aretha Franklin is an American classic. Here she is backed up by King Curtis.

Here’s King Curtis & The Kingpins. The description attached to this vid from the Utoobage: “The only band that could make Booker T & The M.G.’s sweat.”

Proof that Booker T & the MGs didn’t sweat. With that, have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow.

  1. Rap on brother… rap on!!! Damn good stuff Bunks!!! I’m so glad I had the good fortune to be there when Motown first came out… man that was and always will be some of the greatest music ever!!!

    And the band played on…..


  2. Tattoo Jim– It amuses me when I stumble on some old gems and realize that the words I heard when I was younger have changed to the ones I hear now. After all, I grew up with an AM transistor radio under my pillow, listening to WSAI, and all my allowance money was spent on batteries.
