Got To Get You Off My Mind, Soloman Burke, 1965 Burke: “It was written in California the night of Sam Cooke’s death. I learned of Sam Cooke’s death after leaving him two hours prior to that. At the same time I learned about my wife wanting a divorce. A special delivery letter was at the desk waiting for me in the hotel.”

Background vocals include Dee Dee Warwick (sister to Dionne Warwick) and Emily “Cissy” Houston (mother of Whitney Houston and aunt to the Warwick sisters).

Saturday Matinee – Blender CG Compilation, Richard Hell & The Voidoids, Mountain Music & Joe Bonamassa

Saturday, 30 January 2021

I’m on the Blender email list, and occasionally they link to video tutorials/demos. I don’t use the CG program, but its capabilities blow me away. The guy who compiled the animations ran out of audio at about 03:10 but dealt with it pretty well.

In 1965, David Hoffman filmed some genuine hill music from the mountains of North Carolina for a television documentary. Music starts at 04:28. (If you want to hear the four and a half minute lead in, start at 00:00.) Hoffman filmed those same musicians in the best clogging video you’ll find.

This animated cartoon music video of Richard Hell and the Voidoids‘ single “The Kid with the Replaceable Head” (Radar, 1979) was created by Washington D.C. kid’s show “Pancake Mountain.” The song was written by Richard Hell, and this recording was produced by Nick Lowe.

2009 Joe Bonamassa sounds a lot like 1974 Robin Trower. I like it.

Have a great weekend or something. More to come.

Wham! Lonnie Mack (1963) The Wham of That Memphis ManHit song from his first album was likely influenced by Bobby Blue Bland‘s Turn Your Love Light On (1961) and there are echoes of it in Clarence Gatemouth Brown‘s Pressure Cooker (1985).

Saturday Matinee – Orkestra Obsolete, Thee Sinseers, Kemuri & The Ghost Town Blues Band

Saturday, 23 January 2021

“It’s like a bunch of 1930’s comic book villains got together and formed a band.” – YouTube Comment
Not much can be found about Orkestra Obsolete except that Scottish guitarist Angus McIntyre assembled the band for the BBC. The original un-colorized video was released ca. 2016 and is a cover of New Order’s 1983 electrobeat song of the same name.

Thee Sinseers have the chicano soul groove down and mix in a bit of Motown on the side. Wait’ll Joey Quiñones’ voice ages a bit and they’ll be even better.

Founded in Oxnard, California in 1995, disbanded 2007, reunited 2012, Kemuri is more to my liking these days. They released two albums back-to-back in 2015 and they’re still touring world wide.

Ignore the tacky stage decor, The Ghost Town Blues Band nails the Memphis sound of the early 70s.

That should hold you over for a while. Have a big fat sloppy weekend, but be back here tomorrow just because.
