Totnes- the Tombstone of England
Hi Keith, I can only remember a few, and he didn't sing a whole song in but one, I think. Suppose I could though if no one else does. I have NEVER started a thread, LOL. Guess it is not a big deal, but it scares me a bit! No one ever comments on my Ken Curtis songs except for Sue and Jim....I was surprised at that. Guess everyone has already heard them. On the other places I posted them, I got tons of comments. This board just knows their subjects too well.
Well, I have all the Dean Martin tapes and Duke was a visitor a few times. This is NOT what we are talking about, but he actually DOES sing at the very last........GREAT lip sinker! Seeing it also reminded me of something MOST important to me. Have to research the Johnny Carson show. KPKEITH
Thanks Keith for re-sharing this with us, as we have seen it over the years many times. It's a Great example of Duke and Dean working together.
In this day and age, its amazing the copyright holders haven't banned it from youTube, like they have done so many others.
LOL, Jim....I was going back to "FIX" your YOU TUBE for you, but looks as if Sue has already gotten there. Yep, I LOVE to watch Duke mingle with other stars on TV shows. You get to see him in a whole different light. I am pretty sure he was in Dino's "closet" one night when he opened the door! KPKEITH
This is a European female Country Music group, that bill themselves as;
Country Sisters - country music from the heart of Europe
anyone heard of them before?
Someone commented, Great music, too many hats on the front row!
Well,I live right smack dab in one of the biggest Bluegrass capitals of the world. I have never heard that type of rendition of Cotton Eyed Joe, but I bet the men watching sure enjoyed it, LOL. Nope never heard of them. This is the way I first heard it and most of the bands around here play it more like this but with a long banjo part.
Well, this in an old film of my good friend, Comer Moon Mullins. Quite a story behind this man. But, he took Merle Travis' two finger and thumb picking style and added two more fingers! He has played all over and has been world champion thumb and finger style picker four times.....the last was the champion of champions event. This is an old Merle song that most folks think Moon plays better than Merle. He has what is called a "heavy thumb" and some special licks in this song. When I had him come visit my Mom and me, all the NC famous thumb and finger pickers were floored that I knew him,LOL. I invited anyone who wanted to come and I cooked about $300 worth of seafood on the grill. They played for over four hours. Sometimes they would have Moon play the same lick again and again. Finally someone asked him, "Moon, would you play Nine Pound Hammer? I think you play it better than Merle!" Well, he had to play that one lick about 20 times over. Almost all of them finally got it. If you see something called THE COOK SHACK.....it is about 5 miles from my house. You couldn't imagine the famous people who have played in that tinylittle place, LOL. Every Saturday morning there is a Jam, and you never know who will be there. Here is Moon a good while ago.
Keith might enjoy this picking....
OK, promise last for me tonight, LOL. Couldn't resist with all the Tiptoe Tulips inferences. This is my friend Moon again just a few months ago at the Cook Shack 5 miles down the street from my house. Clay and his group had him as a guest player, remember he's in his late 70s. I had told him about Tiny Tim before, (he had never known about it), so he puts a little of him in the song. But, Jim, if you can play it THIS way....don't think ANYONE will laugh at you, LOL!. Also, you will see me in the front row near the end. I am wearing a maroon shirt with a blue Navy ball cap and glasses, sort of a small person. You will see,I just can't sit still when someone is playing good music! In some of the others, you see more of me, and I actually sing a song with an unbelieveable 90 year old broadcaster. Here she comes.
