Saturday Matinee – Compact Living, Andrea Motis & Joan Chamorro, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, and Die Häder Bänd w/ Linda Krieg

The tenants’ reviews are interesting [via].

Andrea Motis & Joan Chamorro.

Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings did a great cover of Gregg Allman’s Midnight Rider (even though it’s a commercial). Sharon Jones succumbed to pancreatic cancer in 2016 at the age of 60.

Acclaimed German blues group Die Häder Bänd covers Memphis Minnie. Can’t find the lineup, but that’s Linda Krieg is on vocals and harp.

Don’t know what happened, but I lost a day this week and missed the .Gif Friday Post. Maybe it’s because I got mask-shamed by a dwarf. Again.

Meanwhile have a great weekend and we’ll go on a link binge tomorrow.

Awesome Aussie RiddimReggae Rock.

Toots & The Maytals’ Pressure Drop.

Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings got the Southpaw.

Dang. Too much too little too late, but that gets me five. Have a great weekend. See you all tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Bunk’s Birthday, World’s Fastest Indian, Call Me Al, Steep Canyon Rangers, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings


Kudos to Amy Oops for this one, even though it’s not my birthday and I’m no one’s bitch, even if I enjoy popping balloons.


World’s fastest Indian. h/t Mongoose

Nice version of this Paul Simon song. h/t AZfederalist

Steve Martin’s Steep Canyon Rangers provide free music for those who are without it. They’re not bad at it, either.

Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings need no explanation. Pure retro soul, and with that, we’re out. Have a great weekend folks, and be back here tomorrow for more fun.

Saturday Matinee: Eartha Kitt, Sharon & Binky, Willis, Eddie & Keith

Eartha Kitt (1927-2008).  She was THE Catwoman.

Sharon Jones, live in France, backed by Binky Griptite & the Dap Kings.

Willis “Gator Tail” Jackson cranks it in 1955.

Now for Something Else:

Eddie Cochran recorded this in 1959.  (Six months later he died in a car crash in England that also injured Gene Vincent and the songwriter, Sharon Sheely.)

Keith Richards’ tribute to Cochran.  Richards died of various drug overdoses and alcohol poisonings in 1967, 1970, 1972, 1983 and several other years since.  He’s still touring.
