Happy Friday the 13th

The whole album, from 1974, is a treat. Here’s another cut. And another. And another.

    Where’s my black cat?

    • Opus the Poet Says:

      Black cats are lucky, it’s the white ones that get you in trouble. Unless of course you trip over a black one in the dark.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      Miss Mia Sopaipilla is at least part Russian blue, so she’s neither black nor white but something in between, kind of a dark gray shot through with silver. So I have to do the Nursing Home Shuffle if I’m navigating El Rancho Pendejo in the dark. One flat cat and one heart attack later and we’ll both be sitting in the Devil’s outer office awaiting our intake interviews.

    Meanwhile, put on your red shoes and dance the blues.

    My favorite quote from the piece:

    The staff of Live, which transforms into a bottles-and-tables dance club for young professionals around 10 p.m., adores the elderly crowd.

    “They have the most fun,” said Chelsea Anderson, a 31-year-old bartender, who has been working the happy hour for 6 years. “Everybody loves each other. It’s a stark difference from the late crowd, where everyone is upset and barfing.”

    “I like the sound of bronze strings on rosewood better than steel strings on magnets.” I need to check Mr. Edwards out. Thanks for the tip!

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      I stumbled across Jonathan Edwards about the same time I was getting into Bonnie Raitt, John Prine, Steve Goodman, Emmylou Harris, et al.

      Here’s a fave from those bygone days:

      And while we’re at it, here’s another:

    Thanks for the music memories Pat!

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      Some blasts from the past to be sure, eh? Ours was an eclectic playlist Back in the Day®, from the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band to Parliament-Funkadelic. “If you hear any noise, it’s just me and the boys, hit me! You gotta hit the band.”

      • Pat O’Brien Says:

        Funk? Funny what we discovered, late again, on PBS. The show Bluegrass Underground, now called The Caverns, introduced us to Brandi Carlyle and these guys. They have one of the best funk drummers I’ve heard.

      • Patrick O'Grady Says:

        That’s some fine funk there. I dig the saxman, too. I’ve heard about these dudes but forgot to look ’em up. Thanks for passing the word.

    Well that Lettuce funk certainly took the frost off a 17 degree morning here in the Mitten State. Thanks POB!
