Saturday Matinee – The Crow, Samantha Fish & Unknown Hinson

The Crow (2022) is a film  short created by Glenn Marshall Neural Art.

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.

“Here come the dayum train, Bebeh!” – Unknown Hinson

Guess that’ll do for now.  Have a great weekend despite what they tell you, and tomorrow we’re gonna do stuff.

Sears & Roebuck Ads 1908-1913

Very nice house design from 1908 with a 1908 price of under $2,500. That’s about $70,000 in 2022 dollars. Click on images to enlarge.

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.

Saturday Matinee – Compact Living, Andrea Motis & Joan Chamorro, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, and Die Häder Bänd w/ Linda Krieg

The tenants’ reviews are interesting [via].

Andrea Motis & Joan Chamorro.

Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings did a great cover of Gregg Allman’s Midnight Rider (even though it’s a commercial). Sharon Jones succumbed to pancreatic cancer in 2016 at the age of 60.

Acclaimed German blues group Die Häder Bänd covers Memphis Minnie. Can’t find the lineup, but that’s Linda Krieg is on vocals and harp.

Don’t know what happened, but I lost a day this week and missed the .Gif Friday Post. Maybe it’s because I got mask-shamed by a dwarf. Again.

Meanwhile have a great weekend and we’ll go on a link binge tomorrow.
