I Do, The Marvelows (1965) Formed in Chicago in the 1950s  as Little Satan & The Demons, later as The Mystics, the group landed a recording deal with ABC-Paramount in 1964 and became The Marvelows. In 1968, to avoid being confused with The Marvellos, they became The Mighty Marvelows and recorded In The Morning.

Freddie’s Boogie, Freddie Mitchell And His Orchestra (1953) Saxophonist Freddie Mitchell was among other things “a session musician and bandleader for multi-artist rock shows held by Alan Freed. Mitchell had previously recorded Moondog Boogie named in honor of the disc jockey and the two of them appeared together in the 1956 film Rock, Rock, Rock.”

Saturday Matinee – ZeFrank, Yoann & Marie Bourgeois, Little Walter (w/ Hound Dog Taylor, Dillard Crume & Odie Payne) and GA-20

ZeFrank educates because it’s what he does, behbeh.

Walter’s Blues (1967).
Little Walter – Harp

Straight Outta Loveland:
GA-20 covers Hound Dog Taylor & The House Rockers. Great authentic electric blues with respect, these guys ain’t posers.

Lotsa stuff to do: stuff that I need to do, stuff that I probably oughta do, and stuff that’s a total waste of time.  Seems I’m doing a lot of the third type of stuff these days, but at least it’s fun. Have a Superbowl weekend, and we’ll be back tomorrow. For stuff.

Auld Lang Syne Boogie, Freddie Mitchell Orchestra (1949) The Freddie Mitchell Orchestra (aka Hen Gates & His House Rockers, Hen Gates & His Gators) features Mitchell on sax and Rip Harrigan on piano.

“For years the rumor was that Hen Gates and His Gaters were in fact the Dizzy Gillespie band. In fact Hen Gates is Freddie Mitchell and the tracks on the album credited to them, Lets All Dance To Rock And Roll, are simply old Derby masters given new titles. When Derby filed for bankruptcy in 1954, Freddie Mitchell masters had been sold cheaply and had already been reissued on several labels before they turned up on Masterseal who thought they could pull a fast one and pass them off as tracks recorded by Hen Gates and His Gators who, according to the LP sleevenotes, were ‘a group of talented young Rock ‘N Roll musicians.’ ” [Source]
