If you went to the Bonnie Raitt closer concert at Edmonton Folk Fest this year, you would have noticed her keyboard player Mike Finnegan.
Bonnie gave him his own spotlight and he sang like a mockingbird.
I’ve been playing Mike for years now and am so happy he’s still around and finally getting the break he earned years ago,
And THATS why he starts off Saturdays Stew.
On Vinyl my friends.
Lyle Lovett sings a Holiday song – well, it mentions the Holidays. Girl with the Holiday Smile which begins
“I met a hooker at the grocery store”
Brand new Van Morrison music Born to Sing
New Whitehorse. Radiator Blues
New Scenic Route, Royal Wood
Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top) shows up with a down and dirty version of Peter Greens Oh Well on the Tribute to Fleetwood Mac. I’m happy to see that the producers we aware there were two different Fleetwood Macs. The first was by far the best.
LIVE tracks from
Jackson Browne and David Lindley. This is a very powerful LP. Recorded on a tour of Spain in 2006. The band consisted of some of Spains greatest players.
Check out the remarkable version of Late for the Sky.
Etta James – doing Jimmy Reeds Baby what you want me to do.
Show closes with one of the best singles ever recorded…Mongo SantaMaria Watermelon Man.
