Saturday Matinee – Por Uhklelelas, Eric Clapton & JJ Cale, & Bill Tapia


Por Uhklelelas nailed it, and that’s the prettiest version of the song I ever heard. Unfortunately I can’t find a link to their website. On the other hand I can link to this:

Bill Tapia, aka,The Duke of the Uke, calls the chords. Huell Howser interviewed him.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow whether you like it or not.

    As I recall, this was one of Frank Zappa’s few commercial
    successes. Most of his songs were just too weird for most
    radio stations to air. I have about 65 of his albums on CD
    but never got around to completing the collection.

    ksbeth– I thought so, too.

    Leonard J. —

    Zappa got very little radio airplay. Although I knew of The Mothers, I’d never heard him until “Don’t Eat The Yellow Snow.,” and I bought Apostrophe (‘) . That’s when I got hooked. Later I bough Sheik Yerbuti, Joe’s Garage and Zoot Allures and others. His lyrics were often sophomoric, but his bands were tight and he nailed a lot of music genres, especially R&B.

    Zappa’s “Peaches En Regalia” is in the top ten of my all-time favorites, (though some versions are better than others).
