Air Swimmers

“Jaws” in 60 seconds. Duh du duh du duh du…

The Sonics were definitely proto punk. “Psycho” from 1965.

Petty Booka featuring Petty and Booka. Nice harmonies with ukes.

Here’s The Grateful Dead’s version of Sam Cooke‘s “Let The Good Times Roll.”

End of summer back to school kinda music. Have a great Labor Day Weekend, folks, and be back tomorrow for more fun.

Saturday Matinee – MANT, King Sunny Adé, Steel Drum, ASWAD, The Sonics

King Sunny Adé popularized Nigerian juju music during the “World Music” meme of the 1980s. Didn’t hurt that he was awarded the title of Minister of Music there, either.

Oh ya mon. Me got de steel drum reggae.

Adjust your volume up and groove it.

Great Googly Moogly! Here’s The Sonics “Anyway The Wind Blows” from 1967 – and all these years I thought it was a Frank Zappa composition.  Woof.

[Update: Maybe I was right after all. On the Wiki list for “Cruising with Ruben & the Jets” the song is credited to Zappa.]

Have a great weekend folks. See you back here tomorrow.
