So in other words, if you want to impress your guests with your talent for setting sugar cubes on fire, take up smoking first.

The Deltones (UK) had a nice reggae cover of The Staple Singers’ hit “I’ll Take You There” in 1972. (There were a lot of groups who called themselves The Deltones, so I’m not sure which to link t0.)

Saturday Matinee – Mavis Staples, The Staple Singers, Les Paul & Billy Gibbons, and Cutty Flam

Saturday, 10 June 2017 by

Nice groove with a great message from Mavis Staples.
[h/t windbag].

The Staple Singers, a family gospel/soul group had a number of hits in the 60’s and 70’s, and “I’ll Take You There” was my favorite due to the killer bass line.

Les Paul met up with Billy Gibbons in 1999. Interesting banter, interesting jam.

Bunkarina caught wind of a SoCal band that she thought I should check out. I did, and you should, too.

Cutty Flam is a 1-woman-2-man retro rockabilly R&B band from the San Fernando Valley. Reminds me of a combination of Richie Valens, The Paladins, Ruben & The Jets (with a sprinkling of The B-52s) and I like it.

Have a great weekend, folks. More stuff is on the way.

This Is Not A Fly Nose.

Thursday, 8 June 2017 by

With vertebrates, a proboscis is a nose. With invertebrates, it’s a feeding appendage (I didn’t know that either).
