Saturday Matinee – Sushi, Percy, Grappelli, AatW, Bob Wills

Percy Faith’s “Theme From A Summer Place” was one of my favorites for reasons I really can’t explain; I just liked it, especially when the french horns kicked in. [via The Chawed Rosin]

Here’s another song that’s way up in my favorites. “Blue Moon” was composed by Rogers and Hart in 1934, and Stéphane Grappelli treated it with respect.

Asleep at the Wheel paid homage to Bob Wills & His Texas Playboys. [via Huck Funn]

Don’t know who Bob Wills was? Here’s a video to show you what y’all have been missing. Meanwhile, have a great Independence Day weekend, folks, and don’t forget to put your flag out tomorrow.

Charlie Ryan & the Timber Riders hit the charts on 9 May 1960 with “Hot Rod Lincoln” even though it was recorded in 1955. Unfortunately the videonazi bastards prevent embedding it here, so you gotta click to hear it.
