No shine. No polish. Pure awesome Babe Magnetage.
Saturday Matinee – Mean Mary James, Sam Chatmon, Boyd Rivers, Larry Carlton & Robben Ford
Mean Mary James burns through the traditional banjo standard “Cripple Creek.” Her bio is a jaw-dropper.
I don’t usually post two in a row from the same musician, but here’s Mean Mary and
husband brother Frank James with “Joy,” an original song she wrote (with snippets from “Ode To Joy”).
The great Sam Chatmon plays Big Road Blues, That’s All Right & Sam’s Rag.
Boyd Rivers at the Mississippi Blues Festival 1980, introduced by Willie Dixon.
Ah, bullpoop. They’re not the greatest guitar players ever, but this is pretty good. Larry Carlton & Robben Ford jam the blues 2007.
That should do you folks for a while. Have a great weekend, see you tomorrow.
[Correction: Frank James is Mean Mary’s brother, not her husband. h/t Steven Brooke.]

Shinemobile Babe Magnet
Babe Magnet? Oh yeah. With beads and braids. One minor criticism. This would be an awesome sled if only the driver’s seat were at the other end.
The Original Version Was Better
Don Knotts’ cameo as the renegade chopper pilot was hilarious.
