Saturday Matinee – The Tractors, The Blue Cats & Tony Spinner

Steve Ripley & The Tractors were responsible for creating the highest selling album ever recorded in the state of Oklahoma. Ripley passed away  at his home in Pawnee, Oklahoma in 2019. He was 69

The Blue Cats – Beltane Fire hail from Southhampton, England. They morphed somewhat over the years, moving from rockabilly to psychobilly, then “ditched the quiffs and upright bass for something darker, heavier and evocative of merry old England” according to one review.

Tony Spinner is probably better known as a background vocalist/guitarist for Toto. He owns owns a 1964 Chevy SS.

Have a great weekend, busy or not, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow for, you know, whatever.

 

Saturday Matinee – Maddy Bailey, Zappa’s Bolero, The Cadillac Three & John L. Hooker Suckuppery

Maddy Bailey takes no offense [via].

Frank Zappa conducted Ravel’s Bolero, one of the most boring compositions ever, but added a Reggae beat. Why not?

The Cadillac Three make some fun noise. Never met ’em, but I grew up with some just like ’em. Good people.

Holy crap! Look at the lineup of that John Lee Hooker backup band!

Have a great weekend, folks. Boogie chillun’.
