Saturday Matinee – The Funk Brothers, Procul Harum & Robin Trower

Saturday, 20 June 2020

The Funk Brothers were/are a rotating group of session musicians who performed on many Motown classics, including The Contours‘ 1962 hit “Do You Love Me.” This 2002 line up backed Bootsy.

I always liked that song even though nobody knows exactly what Procul Harum was singing about in 1967.

Robin Trower continued his career after leaving Procul Harum, had a nice solo run, and is still performing at 75. Jimmy Dewar‘s vocals always fit.

Have a great weekend, folks, don’t burn down or loot anything, turn in those who do, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow for something or other.

Saturday Matinee – Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Amy Winehouse and The Contours

Saturday, 13 February 2016

The Ghost of Sam Cooke lives, and Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats prove it. Let the good times roll.

The late Amy Winehouse did an interesting cover of Sam Cooke’s “Cupid.” What a talented mess she was.

The Contours knew how to dance a love song.

That’ll do it for a St. Valentine’s Day Eve edition of the Saturday Matinee. See you back here tomorrow, lovers.
