In 2020, the world stood still… in the movies too. The End is an experimental narrative short film, in black & white and color, made only with movies gifs with a perfect loop, more than 500. The End is also a tribute to the cinema, from silent films to now.
23 year old Kingfish Ingram has already recorded and/or performed with Rick Derringer, Samantha Fish, Eric Gales, Guitar Shorty, Buddy Guy, Bob Margolin, Keb Mo, Mr. Sipp and the Tedeschi Trucks Band. Amazing.
Whoa. It’s the weekend already. Lotta time flies these days and we’ll see you tomorrow sooner than you think.
In The Morning, The Mighty Marvelows (1968)
Formed in Chicago in the 1950s as Little Satan & The Demons, later as The Mystics, the group landed a recording deal with ABC-Paramount in 1964 and became The Marvelows. They had little initial success (Billboard suspended its R&B listings in 1963) but scored with I Do in 1965. In 1968, to avoid being confused with The Marvellos, they became The Mighty Marvelows but disbanded the following year.
In December 2017 Samantha Fish ripped into the classic Crow Jane. “Its roots lay in the Piedmont region of Virginia and North and South Carolina. Rev. Gary Davis was known to perform it during the 1920’s, and the first recording was made in 1927 by guitarist Julius Daniels.”
Not sure what Crow Jane did to deserve being killed.
Marie, The Four Tunes (1953)The Four Tunes originated from The Brown Dots, a quartet started in New York City by Ivory “Deek” Watson after he split from the Ink Spots in late 1944. Marie was written by Irving Berlin and first recorded by Nat Shilkret & the RCA Victor Orchestra (as The Troubadors) in 1928.
Party Hard, Little Isidore & The Inquisitors (date unknown)Can’t find a date for this gem, could be 1993 or 2012, but I love it. Little Isidore is/was the alter ego of David Forman, a little known musician with a great resume; he fronts The Inquisitors, aka The Golden Inquisitors, aka The Mighty Inquisitors. Forman is 10 years younger than Little Isidore.
