Saturday Matinee – Germs and You, The First Edition, Gunhild Carling & Elvin Bishop

by

Yankovic tweeted this out recently as a public service announcement.

The First Edition (featuring Kenny Rogers on bass & vocals) had their first big hit in 1968.

Gunhild Carling is amazing. According to Wiki, she plays trombone, bagpipes, trumpet, recorder, string instruments (such as banjo, ukulele and harp) and can also play three trumpets simultaneously.

So where do we go from here? Oh wait. I got it.

Haven’t heard that song since high school. Elvin Bishop had a few minor hits, but never got the recognition he deserved despite touring with the Allman Bros. (According to the comments on the Utoobage, I wasn’t the only one who thought the other guitar was Dickie Betts – it was Johnny ‘V’ Vernazza.)

Have a great weekend, folks. If you decide to go out, hoard me some, too.
