Saturday Matinee – The Temptations & Edwin Starr, Eric Burdon & War, and Seasick Steve

Tacky Raccoons

Edwin Starr lip-synched the classic song “War” in 1969. Good God, y’all. Originally recorded by The Temptations, their version was squelched and re-recorded with Starr on vocals. It made No.1 on the charts in 1970, and was one of 161 songs on the Clear Channel no-play list after September 11, 2001 according to Wiki.

Nobody wants war except our enemies, and to ignore their stated intents and stated goals is fatal. Seems to me that if they want to kill all of us, all Jews, all of Western Civilization, we’re going to have a very long fight.

Eric Burdon & WAR was awesome.

Seasick Steve jams pure awesome swamp rock with an electric Diddley Bow.

That’ll do it for today. Have a great weekend folks.
