Sunday Morning Video: Old 97’s Live On The Radio

Old 97’s weekend continues with two appearances on KEXP in Seattle. The first in 2014, the second in 2017.

SMV: Farewell To The World 20th Anniversary Concert

Crowded House week continues at First Draft. In 1996, Crowded House said farewell to the world by playing a show outside the Sydney Opera House. Since they regrouped in 2006, they decided to celebrate the earlier celebration on its 20th anniversary. How celebratory of them. Pop open some bubbly and enjoy.

Sunday Morning Video: TCB

TCB is a 1968 teevee special produced by Motown in association with the guys who made Laugh In, George Schlatter and Ed Friendly. TCB was a then popular acronym standing for Taking Care of Business.

Sunday Morning Video: They Came From Beyond Space

A few weeks back I wrote a pulp fiction post about The Gods Hate Kansas and the 1967 movie based on it. Without further adieu, I give you They Came From Beyond Space:

We’re not in Kansas any more, Toto.

Sunday Morning Video: CSNY Live In Golden Gate Park

When legendary San Francisco concert producer/promoter Bill Graham died in a helicopter crash in 1991, some of  his friends gathered in Marconi Meadows in his honor. CSNY were among the performers.

 

Sunday Morning Video: Submitted For Your Approval

I wrote about The Twilight Zone  yesterday. Here’s a 1995 American Masters documentary about the late, great Rod Serling.

Sunday Morning Video: The Smithereens Live In Jersey

The Smithereens liked to say they’d play anywhere they could get an audience. This set proves that. The emcee reminds me of Linda Richman of SNL fame. It’s a pity that she didn’t say the Reens were like butter.

Sunday Morning Video: Sing Me A Jazz Song

I wrote about the late Jon Hendricks yesterday. Here’s an episode of Soundstage featuring 2/3 of Lambert, Hendricks & Ross as well as Leon Thomas.

It’s a transfer from a home VHS recording so there are a few brief technical glitches. They’re worth riding out for the music.

Sunday Morning Video: Dwight Live

Here’s a 1996 Dwight Yoakam teevee special on the Disney Channel of all places.

 

Sunday Morning Video: VH1 Does Tom Petty

I’m still mildly obsessed with Tom Petty. Here are two VH1 programs featuring TP.

Here’s an appearance on the BBC’s Old Grey Whistle Test:

Sunday Morning Video: James Brown Live At The Ritz

Here’s the Godfather of Soul live in 1986:

Sunday Morning Video: Werewolves On Wheels

You may recall Werewolves On Wheels from Pulp Fiction Thursday a few weeks ago. It’s time to unleash the whole damn movie on an unsuspecting public.

The SMV is back from hiatus with the VICE episode that everyone’s talking about:

 

Sunday Morning Video: The Jayhawks Live In 2017

Here’s a recent set from the Sellersville Theater in Sellersville, PA. Apparently, it’s a Sellersville market…

SMV- A City On Fire: The Story Of The ’68 Detroit Tigers

It’s the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Detroit riot.  This 2002 HBO documentary takes a look at the riot and why it didn’t happen again the next summer. The main reason was the 1968 World Champion Tigers.

Sunday Morning Video: Chick Corea Meets Herbie Hancock

The two great jazz keyboard players had, of course, met before this joint appearance on Soundstage in 1974. The show features short sets by Return To Forever and the Headhunters followed by a Chick and Herbie piano duet.

Sunday Morning Video: The Alvin Brothers Live

I know they don’t call themselves the Alvin Brothers. Whatever they call themselves, this is a helluva set. Enjoy.
