Saturday Matinee – Arkie Shibley, Commander Cody, Roy Acuff, Rocky Roberts & The Bo-Keys


Arkie Shibley & His Mountain Dew Boys set up the original template for the answer song “Hot Rod Lincoln” by Charlie Ryan. For decades I thought Phil Harris was the original author/artist.

HRL was later covered by Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen.

Smoke on the Water by Roy Acuff.

Rocky Roberts was pure awesome soul in France, but not in the US. [tip o’ the tarboosh to Bunkarina for the find.]

The Bo-Keys‘ moniker is a apparently a riff on The Bar-Kays and The Mar-Keys, both great session groups from Stax Records of Memphis Tennessee. There’s enough soul in the last vid to last you for at least a month.

Have a great weekend, and for all men who accept their duties as fathers and do it right, Happy Fathers Day.
