Saturday Matinee – Russian Standoff, Booker T. & The MGs, Merle Travis w/ Speedy West and Judy Hayden, & Paula Jo Taylor

“We need some untranslatable Russian Stuff.” Young Russian thugs messed with the wrong construction workers [via]. On the other hand, here’s the same crane, so the vid was probably staged for the lulz. They’re apparently in the auto reclamation business.

“Hang ‘Em High” is a musical theme composed by Dominic Frontiere for the soundtrack of the 1968 film of the same name. Though it was first covered by Hugo Montenegro, whose orchestra recorded a full album of music from the film, the tune became a hit in an R&B instrumental version by Booker T. & the M.G.’s that charted #9 Pop and #35 R&B [Quote & links via Wiki].

Merle Travis was a national treasure. Country pop is nothing compared to country swing, and check out that unusual picking style.

Heck, let’s go one more just for fun.

Have a great weekend, folks, and remember that the traffic goes back to default on Monday.
