Saturday Matinee – Joey Ramone, Geddy Lee, Stanley Clarke & The Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio

Saturday, 20 February 2021

Joey Ramone‘s song and stop-motion vid New York City were made and released in 2012, 11 years after his death. The song was an overdub of a demo tape. Tommy Erdlai (Tommy Ramone) is in there somewhere (I think that’s him at 02:57).

Geddy Lee cranks it. I should have paid more attention to Rush; I liked the sound but couldn’t stand the vocals.

Stanley Clarke‘s Touch, live at the Newport Jazz Festival (2003). Another amazing bass solo (with some annoying narration stuck in the middle of it).

Delvon Lamarr – Hammond B3 organ
Jabrille “Jimmy James” Williams – guitar
David McGraw – drums
The Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio (aka DLO3) grooves it. Someone in the vid comments said the guitar sounds like Hendrix doing jazz. Someone else noted that the bassman is playing with his feet.

Hope those of you getting hammered by the record breaking cold get some relief soon, and that the following thaw doesn’t make it worse. We’ll all be here tomorrow. See you then.

Saturday Matinee – Escalator, The Green Men & Louie Louie

The guy had never seen an escalator, didn’t trust it for good reason. [Found here.]

The Vancouver Canucks are like the Chicago Cubs of hockey. They always come close to winning the Cup, but never quite pull it off. To be honest, I don’t follow the NHA, let alone professional sports. But I saw these guys, and I had no idea that they had earned recobanition as a National Treasure of Canada. [via]

Toots & The Maytals play Richard Berry.

George Duke and Stanley Clarke play Richard Berry.

Others played Richard Berry here, here and here.  Oh yeah, and this one’s good, too. But here is the original originator:

There you go – the originator of the classic fratparty song. Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow for more fun stuff.
