Will You Ever Be Mine, Donnie Willis (1960) “The music business is full of crooks and thieves and people who’d stab their mothers for a dollar. And then there’s the downside.”
At 19, Donnie Willis co-founded the Vibra-Harps in 1955 and went solo in 1957, recording dozens of records for many labels and writing hundreds of songs during his career. Willis had first-hand experience getting cheated by record companies and partners in the music business, but found greater success as a “Northern Soul” artist in the UK. Eventually he got sick of it and quit.

Saturday Matinee – Samantha Fish, Shovels & Rope & The Marcus King Band

Samantha Fish has been playing her cover of the Barbara Lewis’ classic for a while, but I  just heard it for the first time today. There are more recent versions on the Utoobage, but I like this one the best. [h/t lobo91]

It starts out slow then throws you face down in the mud. Husband and wife Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst tour forever as Shovels & Rope.

The Marcus King Band  hails from Greenville, South Carolina. A fourth-generation musician, Marcus King started learning guitar at age three or four and has played professionally since he was 11. It shows.

Amazing how the weekends seem to go back to back these days… at least for me. Have a great one – howl at the moon, bark at the sunrise, laugh at life, and we’ll see you soon.

Some are already dated, but so what. Steal and repost as you wish.


Update: Reader Heltau left a comment about Kaley Cuocco’s knee. Had I known I wouldn’t have posted it.

That is probably the leg she had stepped on by a horse and broke and many places. She has two rods in her leg to keep it all together.

Saturday Matinee – Babylon Bee, Rag’n’Bone Man & Sonny and his Wild Cows

The Babylon Bee stings again!

Don’t ask my opinion, don’t ask me to lie, then beg for forgiveness for making you cry.
Rag’n’Bone Man does heavy duty soul.

Live from Budapest, Sonny and his Wild Cows rock it. A popular band in Hungary (and across Europe) they cover 40s & 50s American blues, R&B, rock & roll, rockabilly, swing and country. Free music download at their awesome website, too.

Well looky here. It’s the weekend. Have a great one, and we’ll see y’all back here tomorrow, rain or shine.
