Saturday Matinee – Kmac2021, Stevie Ray Vaughan with Jeff Beck, and Don Nix with the Mar-Keys

by

Kmac2021 is a one-man Spinal Tap. Reminds me of the vids entitled, “What It’s Really Like To Work In A Music Store.”

Part IV
Part V

Okay, so where do we go from here? Goin’ Down.

Stevie Ray Vaughan & Jeff Beck covered Don Nix‘s “Going Down.”
I always thought it was a Freddie King song. So what else did Nix do? A lot.

From Wiki: Don Nix began his career playing saxophone for the Mar-Keys, which also featured Steve Cropper, Duck Dunn and others. The [1961] hit instrumental single “Last Night” (composed by the band as a whole) was the first of many successful hits to Nix’s credit. […] The Mar-Keys evolved into Booker T. & the M.G.’s.

What a convergence of talent at the right time and the right place. God Bless Stax Records.

Have a soulful weekend, folks, be back here tomorrow.

  1. Leonard Jones Says:

    Back in the 90s, I heard this at a liquor store on the way home
    from work. I loved this tune in my Yoot, but I could not
    remember the name. When I got home, I called up the
    oldies station that played it and asked the DJ “What was that
    instrumental song you were playing 15 minutes ago?”

    The DJ said “Last Night.” I replied, “No, tonight.” This went
    on about three times before I got it. The station was famous
    for airing humorous calls. This short version of Who’s on first,
    caused me to stop listening to the station for months for fear
    that I was going to hear myself making an ass of myself!

    Heh. Funny story.

    Rhino Records published a great CD series entitled “Rock Instrumental Classics.” Here’s one of them: Cliff Nobles’ “The Horse” from 1968.
