Saturday Matinee – Charlie the Cow & Myles the Deer, Ruth Brown, Little Feat & Alabama Shakes

Saturday, 27 June 2020

Don’t ask, just watch.

Ruth Brown kicks it with Rainin’ Teardrops on Show Time at The Apollo (1955).

Little Feat (featuring Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris & Jessie Winchester) doing their 1973 swamp rock classic Dixie Chicken.

[Fun fact: Bassman Roy Estrada, one of the founders of the group, was also a founding member of Zappa’s Mothers of Invention, later played with Captain Beefheart. He’s not performing anymore, won’t be eligible for parole until 2033 because this.]

Nice groove to wrap it up. Alabama Shakes on SNL in 2015.

Have a great weekend, folks, watch out for the black masks, and we’ll be back here tomorrow for some reason.

Saturday Matinee – The Funk Brothers, Procul Harum & Robin Trower

Saturday, 20 June 2020

The Funk Brothers were/are a rotating group of session musicians who performed on many Motown classics, including The Contours‘ 1962 hit “Do You Love Me.” This 2002 line up backed Bootsy.

I always liked that song even though nobody knows exactly what Procul Harum was singing about in 1967.

Robin Trower continued his career after leaving Procul Harum, had a nice solo run, and is still performing at 75. Jimmy Dewar‘s vocals always fit.

Have a great weekend, folks, don’t burn down or loot anything, turn in those who do, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow for something or other.

Saturday Matinee – Buddy Merrill, Neil LeVang, Tommy Emmanuel with Billy Strings, & Molly Tuttle

Saturday, 6 June 2020

Buddy Merrill played for Lawrence Welk‘s Champagne Music Makers for twenty years before he decided he didn’t like playing on camera.

You might not know his name, but you’ve heard his work.
Neil LeVang was one of the greatest studio guitar players of all time, played on many TV shows and movie soundtracks. Lawrence Welk hired him when Buddy Merrill was drafted.

Tommy Emmanuel & Billy Strings do things with guitars that just aren’t supposed to be done [via].

One more. Molly Tuttle has the perfect voice and style for this John Hartford cover. If that ain’t morning roadtrip music, nothing is.

Have a great weekend, watch out for the guys in black, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow for stuff.

Saturday Matinee – Chet Atkins w/ Jerry Reed, Creedence, and Les Paul w/ Dickey Betts

Saturday, 23 May 2020

Last week I erroneously (and embarrassingly) confused Nena Kerner with Nina Hagen. I lost a lot of karma for that blowzit, so I’ll try to make up for it.

Chet Atkins & Jerry Reed play Bob Dylan. Not sure of date / place.
(Long intro, jump to 02:00.)

Creedence Clearwater Revival, 1970 Oakland California.

Video caption: The audio track is from the CD commemorating the concert and while I had to make some adjustments in speed to match the video, it sounds a hell of a lot better.

Les Paul with Dickey Betts on a Les Paul from 2001.
(Jump to 02:00 to bypass banter.)

Hope that absolves me somewhat. Have a great weekend, folks, and take a moment to remember what Memorial Day is all about.
