“I’ve synchronized The Flight of the Valkyries (by Richard Wagner) to 8 Line Riders racing down the track for victory. Choose your team color and cross your fingers. All lines were drawn by hand.” [Link found buried in here.]

I can’t remember if I’ve got big plans for the weekend or not, but I know I’m supposed to do something. See you back here whenever.
Grunion Run, The Hollywood Persuaders (1963)Paul Buff was a Marine veteran who was making parts for guided missiles when he decided to go into the recording business. A multitalented musician and recording engineer, he needed a flip side for his band’s 45 of Tijuana Surf, so he contacted a 20 year old guitar player named Frank Zappa.
The Perch Creek Family Jug Band (since renamed Perch Creek) are four siblings plus a stray from Northern New South Wales, are currently based in Melbourne, Australia.
Deak Harp jams outside Deak’s Mississippi Saxophones & Blues Emporium in Clarksdale, Mississippi (2014). Guy got his bonafides by following James “Mr. Superharp” Cotton up and down the east coast before getting a job driving Cotton’s van (and THIS is a Mississippi Saxophone).
Lotta things going down these days, but that’s not news to anyone. In the meantime, have a great weekend and maybe we’ll see better things tomorrow. See you then.
I Won’t Tell, Tracey Dey (1964) Very pretty song about a girl cheating on her boyfriend with his brother – her sister’s boyfriend – and lying to both of them.
Nora Ferrari (aka Tracey Dey) was a college coed when she recorded a demo tape that found its way to the ears of Bob Crewe, producer and songwriter for The Four Seasons and others. Dey released nine solo singles 1962 through 1966; several made the Billboard Top 100 beginning with Teenage Cleopatra.
Mr. Barti performs La Voz Del Tiempo by José Fernández Torres, aka Tomatito.
Alex Mihajlovski was born in Macedonia, resides in Denmark and began designing and constructing marionette puppet “Barti” in Spain in 1986. Apparently he adopted the surname Jørgensen.
“Barti is a complex marionette with many strings, over 40, keeping him alive. […] In 1986 Barti’s master Alex Jørgensen, started improvising with puppet building, using various materials and miniature constructions. During all this time he’s been working in the improvement of Barti, in a no-stop research of the movement complexity, which created this uncommon string puppet. Barti has been travelled all around the world, performing in many international festivals.”

Woodpecker Rock, Nat Couty & The Braves (1958)Born in Natchez, Louisiana on 6 October 1934, Nat Couty played in bands for most of his life, but only recorded one other song – Won’t You Come Along With Me (the flip side). He suffered a stroke in 1999 and died of a heart attack the following year.
I Go Into Orbit, Johnny Acey (1962)John Acey Goodelock (1925-2009) was an east coast R&B singer / pianist who began recording in 1953, and also recorded as Johnny Chef, Acey, J. Acey, and Johnny Acey And His Fingerpoppers. I was unable to find the lineup for this recording; the 45rpm credits Texas songwriter LaCharles Harper and it may have been the inspiration for Stevie Ray Vaughn’s Pride and Joy.
Daredevil Global .Gif promo (2016) features INSA and his “Gif-iti.” He creates some amazing stuff, including the Rockin’ Rolls posted here.
From the Utoobage:
“Pink Floyd performing at the ancient Roman amphitheatre in Pompeii , Italy. The main footage in and around the amphitheatre was filmed over four days in October 1971, using the band’s regular touring equipment, including studio-quality 24-track tape recorders.”
Kinda spacy trippy stuff for this 3-day weekend, and if you’re headed out, be sure to drive fast. The less time on the road reduces the odds of an accident. See you back here tomorrow.
