Saturday Matinee Roadtrip – Talking Heads, Beat Farmers, Steve Earle, Bruce Springsteen, Robert Mitchum & the Winter Bros.

by

Talking Heads‘ “Road to Nowhere.”

Beat Farmers‘ “Road to Ruin.” These guys were a great bar band.

Steve Earle‘s “Copperhead Road.”

Bruce Stringbean & the E Street Band‘s “Thunder Road,” in 1976.

Roger Mitchum‘s “Ballad of Thunder Road.”

Johnny & Edgar Winter, 2007, with Dylan’s classic “Highway 61 Revisited.”

The cooler’s full, the car’s gassed up, and we’re outta here. Have a great weekend, folks, and we’ll see you at the first rest stop after sunup.

    Oh, great choices…. except Springsteen. Can’t abide him. But MITCHUM singing?? Oh totally worth it!! 🙂

    LC Aggie– The only reason I included Stringbean was the date of the vid, and that the song title had “Road” in it. He was way over-hyped in the mid 70s. I liked Southside Johnny better.

    Here’s some trivia: The Ramones played with Springsteen on the same bill, and asked him to write a song for them. “Hungry Heart” was the result, but Springsteen’s manager told him to keep it for himself.

    Edgar and Johnny…Don’t mess with Texas.

    SG– I’m kind of surprised they’ve lasted so long. JW’s had health problems for years.
