Eubie Blake The Chevy Chase (published 1914)
Modern recording played from the score.

Eubie Blake once said that the first time he heard the term “Rock and Roll” was in a cathouse in 1898. It was an early jazz piano style designed to keep the customers moving along.

Mr. Jones looks like an interesting movie. It’s based on the 1933 diaries of Gareth Jones.

The People’s Liberation Army reported that 57% of its candidates in one city failed their physicals due to excessive drinking, video gaming and this.


“The key of postmodernism as a social philosophy is that whether a claim is true or not doesn’t matter and misses the point. All that matters is how that claim can be used politically.” –James Lindsay

Saturday Matinee – Buddy Merrill, Neil LeVang, Tommy Emmanuel with Billy Strings, & Molly Tuttle

Saturday, 6 June 2020

Buddy Merrill played for Lawrence Welk‘s Champagne Music Makers for twenty years before he decided he didn’t like playing on camera.

You might not know his name, but you’ve heard his work.
Neil LeVang was one of the greatest studio guitar players of all time, played on many TV shows and movie soundtracks. Lawrence Welk hired him when Buddy Merrill was drafted.

Tommy Emmanuel & Billy Strings do things with guitars that just aren’t supposed to be done [via].

One more. Molly Tuttle has the perfect voice and style for this John Hartford cover. If that ain’t morning roadtrip music, nothing is.

Have a great weekend, watch out for the guys in black, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow for stuff.

Saturday Matinee – Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, Trio, Nena & the Allotria Jazz Band

Saturday, 16 May 2020

Kraftwerk on The Midnight Special (1975).

I didn’t realize Tangerine Dream was German – but I should have. We’d listen to this while pulling all-nighters at Biteme U.

Trio [via]. I remember the song, never saw the vid.

Nina Hagen in 1983. I always liked that song, but didn’t realize she was born in East Berlin. Unusual circumstances the government allowed her to leave when she was 21.

[UPDATE: Dang. I blew it. Thanks daver.

daver Says:

Nina Hagen did not record that song, the German band Nena did, the lead singer was Nena Kerner.


Live from München, the Allotria Jazz Band plays Jelly Roll Morton.

That’s about all the German stuff I can take for now. Have a great weekend, don’t let the scolds get to you. See you back here tomorrow and stuff.

Saturday Matinee – Black Oak Arkansas, The Osborne Brothers & John Lee Hooker+

Saturday, 25 April 2020

Black Oak Arkansas‘ 1971 cover of LaVerne Baker’s 1956 hit is a good one, but that video is just embarrassing.

The Osborne Bros.‘ 1972 recording of Midnight Flyer was covered by a lot of folks (including the Eagles). I like the original better.

John Lee Hooker, with Elvin Bishop. Paul Butterfield, J.J. Cale & Carlos Santana, in 1986. That’s some badass boogie.

Yeah, that’s an eclectic mix.  I couldn’t quite find what I was originally looking for, kept getting distracted and then forgot where I started.
Have a great weekend, folks. Go outside, do what you wanna do, and ignore the virus-shamers – they’re not worth the attention.
