Saturday Matinee – Sam Chatmon, Rory Gallagher & Night Music

Saturday, 24 October 2015

Sam Chatmon (1897 – 1983) was a classic Mississippi Delta bluesman with a great voice and pure country pickin’.

Roots blues rocker Rory Gallagher jams William Harris’s 1928 song “Bullfrog Blues” in 1980.

From 1989’s “Night Music,” (produced by Lorne Michaels of SNL fame) this line up is pretty awesome. It’s a long vid, but I think I got the numbers right if you want to skip the intros.
Was (Not Was) – 04:22, 21:16
Sonny Rollins – 08:30, 30:16
Leonard Cohen – 13:45, 34:30
Ken Nordine – 26:07.

That should hold you for a while. Be back here tomorrow for more amazing and astounding inanity.

The Sleepy Man Banjo Boys. Start early, play late. [via]

Steve Karla’s “Black Swamp Blues” is original and awesome, and he’s a multi-talented bastard, too.

Rory Gallagher cranks some nice fat blues to lead us into another great weekend. See y’all back here tomorrow.
