Saturday Matinee – Pathé Luxury, Leon Redbone, Tuba Skinny, Kelly Finnigan & The Atonements

From Wiki:
The Pathé Brothers of France went into the photographic business in 1896. In the early 1900s, Pathé became the world’s largest film equipment and production company, as well as a major producer of phonograph records. In 1908, Pathé invented the newsreel that was shown in cinemas before a feature film.

Leon Redbone could scat-sing better than almost anyone, and there’s proof with his cover of Tommy McClennan’s Bottle Up And Go (aka Step It Up And Go recorded by Blind Boy Fuller and many others). If someone in the audience pulled out a camera to take his photo, when the flash went off, he’d stop the song, jump for his camera and take a shot of them. He’d wait as the Polaroid image developed, (“Hmmm. Not a bad likeness”) and pick up the song right where he left it. He kept those photos, too.

Tuba Skinny plays Blind Boy Fuller‘s Untrue Blues.

Kelly Finnigan & The Atonements resurrect the ghost of Otis Redding. Great soul R&B.

Tomorrow is only two days from yesterday, so we’ll see you back here then. Have a great  weekend and stuff.
