Boxcar

Boxcar Willie’s “Winds Of Yesterday” is pretty cool ol’ country.

Don’t laugh. Steve Goodman was the author of the greatest train song ever, except for the one by Tiny Bradshaw.

Not sure where we’re going with this, so let’s go retro with Little Isador and The Inquisitors.

Have a great weekend, folks, and be careful goin’ home.

 

Saturday Matinee – The Channels, Little Isidore, The Hooters, Aswad & SRV

Saturday, 16 June 2012

Earl Lewis & The Channels in 1997. “The Closer You Are” was a regional hit in New York in 1956. (It was covered by Frank Zappa in 1984 who made it sound kinda creepy.)

Little Isadore & The Inquistors’ early R&B style is spot on. Can’t find much about LI, and maybe that’s a good thing. A googoyle search provides little, except that it lead me to Rob Hyman and a band I’d forgotten about.

Hyman was a founding member of The Hooters. I have one of their CDs, but I don’t remember what caught my ear aside from the eclectic sound. “Karla With a K” would have fit my playlist in the late 80’s.

Lessee, what else was I listening to back then? A wide variety, including these guys:

Aswad live at Sunsplash 1984. No, I was never a stoner, but I liked de riddims.

Before anyone thinks I was some kind of pre-hipster indie weenoid back then, this was what I cranked after the sun went down.

Have a great weekend folks (and remember that real dads hate Fathers Day).
