Many years ago, Saturday night was The Good Rats night…find out where they were playing and go there, which usually meant driving 1-2 hours to get there. (This was long before the Internet and e-mail. There was a call-in answering machine that listed the shows)
I have been waiting patiently for someone to post this one and I am so pleased to be able to share a song that illustrates the range of themes that the late, Peppi Marchello could weave into one piece of music.
The kind of music that made The Good Rats a great band.
When I look at my blog stats, it seems that my music posts are the least read and least sticky. I understand. My musical tastes are unique.
Take a few minutes though and listen to this one. Close your eyes and use head phones if you have them handy….trust me. Try to count all the different places this song goes. Time signatures, instruments, sound effects…this song has it all.
It is called Major Minor chords, from the Tasty Seconds record. (That is not the real cover in the video, at least not the one I have, which is what is shown on the link)
