Saturday Matinee – Mavis Staples, The Staple Singers, Les Paul & Billy Gibbons, and Cutty Flam

by

Nice groove with a great message from Mavis Staples.
[h/t windbag].

The Staple Singers, a family gospel/soul group had a number of hits in the 60’s and 70’s, and “I’ll Take You There” was my favorite due to the killer bass line.

Les Paul met up with Billy Gibbons in 1999. Interesting banter, interesting jam.

Bunkarina caught wind of a SoCal band that she thought I should check out. I did, and you should, too.

Cutty Flam is a 1-woman-2-man retro rockabilly R&B band from the San Fernando Valley. Reminds me of a combination of Richie Valens, The Paladins, Ruben & The Jets (with a sprinkling of The B-52s) and I like it.

Have a great weekend, folks. More stuff is on the way.
