Happy Birthday > The Beau Hunks & The Metropole Orchestra

When I searched my library and Flickr for “birthday” this track and this photo were the most interesting things that came up.

(On the musical tip, these are the Beau Hunks, easily my favorite musical discovery of the last 20 years. And if you want to talk about “world music” they get my highest vote, though, of course, not in any way that any other human being would recognize.

From the Kathleen this blog was named for:

“… in response to something you posted on the music site (to quote):
‘And what about his crazy, unique name? Google it and you’ll see there are no others. Just like his music…’

Unless you’re a 50-something muso there’s no way, or no reason really, to explain how much a difference Al Kooper made to us. He’s dined out way too long on the story about being an songwriter/amateur organist/hustler who convinced Dylan to let him play on Like A Rolling Stone, but something about his hustle, his fandom, and the limited talent he had made a generation of musicians believe they had a chance to go all the way. The fact he started to believe he was the prime talent on his records, rather than the catalyst, tanked his career and ambitions. (It wasn’t until he got back to producing the first three Lynyrd Skynyrd records that he made it clear what he was good at.)

With his original Blood, Sweat & Tears Kooper was the sparkplug for the marriage of jazz sensibility with post-rock pop. These [Read more…]
