Guitar Boogie Shuffle, The Virtues (1958) Recorded as Guitar Boogie Shuffle in 1953 by both The Esquire Boys and The Super-Sonics, Frank Virtue (aka Frank Virtuoso) was 35 when he recorded this cover of Arthur Smith & His Crackerjacks 1948 hit Guitar Boogie.

My opinion.

Dog likes Pavarotti.

Don’t try this at home.

Now about this QAnon business…

Saturday Matinee – Too Many Zooz, The Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio & Buddy Guy w/ B.B. King

Saturday, 9 January 2021

“Warriors” by Too Many Zooz, shot somewhere under NYC, is oddly interesting. Some call it street music, but the band calls it “brass house.” Kinda rough on my ears, but I get it.

Tight sound with a nice groove. The Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio (aka DLO3) covers Curtis Mayfield‘s 1970 soul classic Move On Up.
Delvon Lamarr – Hammond B3 organ
Jabrille “Jimmy James” Williams – guitar
David McGraw – drums

“When I’m pushing up daisies, don’t forget. You’re still my, Buddy”

Two greats, Buddy Guy and (the late) B.B. King. No more needs to be said.

Have a great weekend, search for the truth, ignore the liars, and be back tomorrow for Funday.

Saturday Matinee – Boston Dynamics, The Contours, RT n’ The 44s, Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys & Roomful of Blues

Saturday, 2 January 2021

Our whole crew got together to celebrate the start of what we hope will be a happier year: Happy New Year from all of us at Boston Dynamics. http://www.BostonDynamics.com.

Over 18M views and 97K comments since 29 December, and you’ve probably seen it already. I wonder what The Contours think of it.

The Contours‘ chart-topping 1962 hit Do You Love Me became a major hit again in 1988. I bet it scores a third time.

RT n’ the 44s has a laid back retro vibe with a large dollop of Johnny Cash. They’ve been described as “a vintage country band with dark obsessions.”

Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys have been jammin’ it since 1988, and here’s their cover of Colin JamesJumpin’ From Six to Six.

One of the best big brass blues bands in the land is Roomful of Blues. More than 50 musicians have played in the band since its inception in 1967, and I’m not sure of this 2013 lineup.

Have a great weekend, folks, because there’s more on the way. See you tomorrow.
