Saturday Matinee – Dano Lancelot, Frank Zappa, Maceo Parker and Derek & The Dominos

Saturday, 24 August 2019

Dano Lancelot covers UB40’s cover of Neil Diamond’s “Red Red Wine on steel drum, and it’s real pretty.

On 28 October 1976, 35 year-old Frank Zappa appeared on The Mike Douglas Show to discuss his music and promote his album “Zoot Allures.”  Note that Douglas’ show aired in the afternoons and was tailored to stay-at-home moms. Zappa picked an easy one for the studio band: “Black Napkins,” one of my favorite Zappa instrumentals.

“My god. You could base a whole religion around this groove.” -Comment on the UToobage.

Apparently the clip above comes from “My First Name Is Maceo,” a concert/documentary DVD released in 2005.

Maceo Parker– Alto Sax/Vocals
Fred Wesley– Trombone/Vocals
Pee Wee Ellis– Tenor Sax/Vocals
Bruno Speight– Guitar
Jamal Thomas– Drums
Will Boulware– Hammond B-3 Organ
Jerome “Jerry” Preston – Bass Guitar/Vocals

As a bonus, there’s this non sequitur ridiculous awesome.

Have a great weekend, folks.
See you back here tomorrow for, like, you know, stuff.

Saturday Matinee – World’s Strongest Redneck, Derek, Bob, Gatemouth & Johnny, and Buddy Guy

Saturday, 31 July 2010

Redneck washing machine. When Steve McGranahan‘s not bending cast iron skillits for charity, this funny guy makes videos.

“Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad?” was one of Derek & The Dominos’ greatest hits.

One of my favorite Wailers songs.

Here’s a 44 year old Clarence Gatemouth Brown with a 32 yearold Johnny Jones playing  “Chicken Fat” in 1968. [via]

Happy 74th Birthday to Buddy Guy, one of the last original bluesplayers.  Here’s a guy who left the south for Chicago and played for sandwiches to keep from starving.

Have a great weekend, folks. See y’all back here tomorrow.
