Jukebox Saturday Night for October 14th, 2017: The Henry's Mammy, Bob's Love Generation, and Etta At Last Edition


"That's My Mammy" by Henry Thies and His Hotel Sinton Orchestra (1928)

This was recorded May 28, 1928. The slightly racially-tinged title notwithstanding (at least to the ears of someone in 2017), this is a nice piece. The singing doesn't start until about 90 seconds into it.

I heard this piece on Bryan Wright's terrific Shellac Stack Podcast in show No. 92.

Next up, a sweet, wonderful, and upbeat song ...


"Love Generation" by Bob Sinclair ft. vocals by Gary Pine from the album Western Dream (2006)

To be clear, "Love Generation" was released as a single in Oct. 2005 and then appeared on the Western Dream album that was released in April 2006.

The video accompanying this is basically perfect for the song.

Given how I'm feeling tonight, I'm going to end this edition of Jukebox Saturday Night with something mellow and wonderful ...


At Last by Etta James from her album At Last! (1960)

Yes, indeed. At Last. I know I featured it almost four years ago in this JSN edition, but this is one of those pieces that sometimes you just got to have.

OK, that's all for now. Please see my previous entry for an update.
