Saturday Matinee – Single-Handed Pure Devotion, The Dixie Hummingbirds, The Allman Brothers & Kris Kristofferson w/ Johnny Cash

Saturday, 9 March 2019

[via Madam Jujujive]

Miz J. emailed, tells me she likes gospel, blues and old country, so here we go.

The Dixie Hummingbirds (1928-present) are a gospel rhythm and blues vocal group who influenced many recording artists. Even Paul Simon covered them.

What’s the greatest blues song ever? That’s a tough choice because the blues spans so many decades. I’m gonna go with this.

T-Bone Walker recorded “Stormy Monday” in 1947, but The Allman Brothers Band did a great cover 33 years later. I’ve always loved that chord turnaround.

(And THIS is one of the prettiest songs they ever recorded.)

Gospel – Check.
Blues – Check.
That leaves “old country.” Well, it’s not that old, but it counts.

Have a great weekend, folks. More stuff tomorrow.

1960 Pontiac Sled

This wide ride fit in very few parking spaces, and on the road the margin of error was slim. That’s why you see so few of them anymore. Looks like the snow pack is up to the railing at this resort, so the snowbunny on the left must be about 9-feet tall, too.

1949 Amusement Park Ride Advert

The Tilt-A-Whirl was the only ride I ever puked on. I was about 6 years old at the time, and it happened here.

See that blurb at the bottom left? The Runyon Cancer Fund is a charity founded in 1946 (named after famed newsman and writer Damon Runyon) and is still in operation over 70 years later.
