    That was wonderfully horrible.  Sort of Leonard Pinth-Garnell bad.



    On my first visit to Yosemite, I saw a video on sale in the Visitor's Center about the park narrated by Telly Savales.  I'm picturing the same guy doing the Player's Club commercial wearing a tux, saying in his gruff manner, "Come, enjoy the great sites like Vegas, Atlantic City, Reno, Tahoe, and Yosemite."

    Honestly, I never knew Telly had in him!

    I found this revelation equally astonishing:

    He was actually working night clubs before he hit paydirt in THE WILD WILD WEST.

    This is one of the best stories: Lee Marvin was a war vet who saw some pretty hairy stuff. He has played the heavy in some heavy roles. But he said this scared the crap of him. He said he was never so scared as when he had to do this:

    To Carnie: I came across this rare clip of musical intros.
    The first is Hoyt Axton (writer of Snow-blind friend) doing a rarely-heard song. The flic was a personal favorite growing up. Note the casting.

    The second is a terrific mood song in traditional country flavor. The flic, well, I got the music on reel-to-reel! And cassette. And I've seen this flic in more states than I can recall...while on the road. It's a truck-stop legend.

    I didn't even know Lee Marvin could sing. My favorite Lee Marvin movie has always been Emperor of the North Pole, probably because I've ridden a few freight trains myself.

    Re: So Long, Manny Ram

    Marvin couldn't sing! That's why he was so terrified!!!

    EMPEROR was a terrific movie. Borgnine was a long way from "Marty", eh?
    Did you ever hear that Hoyt Axton song before?

    EDIT: My Bad. I forgot to include the link. Sorry.

    I hadn't heard that Axton tune, but I'm not as familiar with his work as I should be. I think I've even only ever heard Steppenewolf's version of Snowblind Friend. I've always been a big fan of 70s exploitation cinema though, and now I suppose I'll have to find a rip of Buster and Billie. Do you remeember Boxcar Bertha? It was one of Scorsese's earlier films.

    Re: So Long, Manny Ram

    I've got Boxcar Bertha on tape. Unconventional flic.

    I must warn you, Carnie, if you ever get a chance top see Buster & Billie (It was Jan-michael's favorite flic), the ending is unforgettable.
    The casting of Robert England before his JASON movies is like watching the difference between Borgnine in Marty - as compared to his sadistic part in
    EMPORER OF THE NORTH.

    A good friend of mine went to see Buster & Billie back in '74, when it first came out. He rode his brand new bike (a nice one) 10 miles to see it.
    When he got out of the theatre, his bike was stolen, but he was so taken by the flic, he bent my ear relentlessly about it. Then, he finally mentioned his bike was swiped. That bike was the most expensive gift he had ever received.

    You mentioned train flics. I'm a huge fan of them.
    Train songs draw me like creative posts.

    Here's a couple:

    Those are nice pulls harness. Loved the Jerry Reed song, and City of New Orleans just might be my favorite Steve Goodman song. Here's the singing brakeman singing my favorite train song. Although I have to admit that the first version of this song I heard was Duane Allman and Boz Scaggs.

    And this is probably my favorite Jerry Reed song.

    I'm a sucker for any songs about Cajuns (Acadians).

    AMOS!     SON!!!!!

    I'm glad you showed that Rodgers flic - for two reasons:
    1) the condition of it was amazing.
    2) If I had posted it, Moonwould never forgive me. I recall his reaction to "HARD TRAVELIN". Man, he made me laugh. Really gutted me.

    Speaking of gutting, I always felt Reed was a gut picker.
    This is a good example why. This is a rare video - I only heard him record this in a movie called CONCRETE COWBOYS (Later became a series with him & Tom Selleck - before Magnum). Note the lyric: EVERYTHING THAT WAS - WAS ONCE A DREAM.

    This shows him as a rock-a-billy singer back when he was 18:

    This illustrates how much his voice was underrated - even by his own admission:

    Jerry Reed was one of the best guitar pickers that ever lived IMO. D#mn fine singer too. I couldn't get the rockabilly clip to play for me, and I really love rockabilly, hence my love for Brian Setzer. Do you know the Ragin' Cajun?

    Try the Reed Rock-a-billy flic again, Carnie. I fixed it.

    Kershaw really kicked some cajun azz - nice. My favorite song of his was WILLIE'S SHADES. It's very provocative. I couldn't find a link to his video, but I did find this:

    Willie's Shades kind of reminds me of an old Skynyrd tune.

    Yeah. Definite similarities with the Skynyrd classic, but Willie's Shades offer hidden lyrical meaning. That song makes me think.

    What's the name of that country artist that had a few Cajun-like hits. He was big in the 80's/90's.

    No. This guy had a nice voice and a cajun style at times. In fact, he's the only country music singer I've liked since the industry changed hands - and every song started to sound like it was one voice with multiple string arrangements.

    I just can't remember his name. I believe he had hits in the 90's. Some creative stuff.

    Carnie, I've been thinking about it for days. I just can't place him because I now listen to jazz. I'm becoming a bit more forgetful over time.

    If you recall UR favorite songs from the 90's, you might get who I'm referring to.

    Unfortunately for a good part of the 90s I was ramming around on freight trains and moving carnivals. Didn't listen to much radio. I did play a lot of Johnny Cash songs for hoboes though. Smile
