    In September 74, a modest 40 years ago, Robert Palmer left Vinegar Joe and hooked up with Lowell George and The Meters to produce a really fab gear album called “Sneakin Sally through the Alley”
    There were no videos at the time, but they made one anyways. Its an Allen Toussaint song, and Palmer tagged on to Sailin Shoes and Hey Julia to storm in to his first album

    Here is “Sneakin im6 through the Alley”…40 years on and still wonderful

      My Dear Hedley,
      This was definitely the first video. It works perfectly with the song and is, as you’ve said, still wonderful.

        Kat, I was doing my usual Fitbit sponsored lunchtime walk – and up popped this song on the ipod. My co walkers were probably laughing at an old man with a bad leg enjoying Palmer and George and the Meters…..oh well, we normally nod at each other as the miles get added, there isn’t much dialog

        MDH,
        I’d think how cool that old guy must be listening to Palmer.

      Hedley, some time ago you asked for good underrated albums.
      Later I tried to get you into Mike Watt but chose an odd video. Others can say it better and the writer of Adioslounge now wrote an excellent article about Double Nickels On The Dime by the Minutemen (Mike Watt on bass and sometimes vocals). 10 songs included. Released 30 years ago I only discovered it some years ago but it’s on my (travel-)playlist since then. On first listen it doesn’t sound perfect, but the album is very interesting and I never get tired of listening to the songs. I’m not really sure whether you will like it, but perhaps you want to try?

      (Kat, I doubt that you’ll like it, too far off the KTCC track.)

    Shouldn’t smoking in a public place be discouraged?

    Cheers
