Saturday Matinee – Lokotv, Cheers, Buddy Guy & GE Smith, Kid Ramos, Flo & Eddie

Saturday, 30 May 2009

Odd.  Consider it a cartoon before the main feature.

Best opening sequence for Cheers without the cloying theme song.

Buddy Guy talks about how his career began with a salami sandwich.  True rags-to-riches story. (G.E. Smith backing.)

I was prowling for some early Thunderbirds when I found a name I’d forgotten about.  Here’s Kid Ramos and Los Fabulocos cranking on “Burnin’ the Chicken” in New Braunfels, Texas, 21 March 2009.

This is the funniest version of Dylan’s “It Ain’t Me, Babe.”
The Turtles made a mockery of  pop love songs, but created a decent string of hits anyway. Flo and Eddie eventually joined Frank Zappa’s Mothers.  (Mrs. Strutts pointed out that Eddie dances the Freddie at the end of the clip.)
