Saturday Matinee – Cat City, Pinetop Perkins & Luther Johnson

Cat City (2017) by Vewn.
“I wanted to portray a world where a character’s experience in the physical world is a reflection of their emotional turmoil. In a way, it parallels my own experience of growing up and leaving home to pursue what I thought was my dream, and then slowly realizing it wasn’t what I thought it would be.”
-Victoria Vincent

Joe Willie “Pinetop” Perkins (1913-2011) passed on a year after this performance. A long time member of Muddy Waters‘ band, he recorded Pinetop’s Boogie Woogie (1953), a song originally written and recorded by Clarence “Pinetop” Smith in 1929.

Woman Don’t Lie & Somebody Loan Me A Dime  – Luther Johnson, with  Sonny Thompson on piano (1973). The second [3:50] is a cover of a Fenton Robinson song.

Have a great weekend, more to come tomorrow.
