Saturday Matinee – Cleverly Brand Alpaca Products, Marion & Sobo Band, The Mustangs, Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears

Digger Cleverly (frontman for the five member trio The Cleverlys) talks about his alpaca ranch.

Marion & Sobo Band does 1930s-era gypsy / Hot Club pretty well. Nice quirky video, too.

The Mustangs, is a famous western surf instrumental band from Finland. They’re so famous I can’t find anything about them.

Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears bring back the Stax/Volt soul sound without a Hammond B3 organ.

Have a great weekend, stay cool, and be where you belong. See you tomorrow.


Saturday Matinee – Richard Thompson, Charles Ray Wiggins & Black Joe Louis

Richard Thompson snarks. If you’ve never heard of him, I pity you.

Charles Ray Wiggins (aka Raphael Saadiq) with “Heart Attack.” This is some nice retro soul with cool camera angles.

Black Joe Louis is in so heavy with Howlin’ Wolf influence that there’s nothing left to say. This is one of the best killer jams I’ve heard in years. Crank it.

Dang, so much stuff goin’ down in so little time. Have a great weekend folks, and see you back here tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears, The Bamboos, & Rufus Thomas

Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears ” Sugarfoot.” Pure retro soul/funk.

The Bamboos, live at Revolver 2006. I recognize the song but don’t know the name.

Rufus Thomas, live at Wattstax 1972, with “Breakdown.”

That’s a wrap for a late post, and enough funk R&B and soul to hold you until tomorrow (or not). Have  a great weekend.
