Inspired by a recent exchange on Facebook, it occurred to me that I have a favourite spoon. If I go to my kitchen drawer looking for a spoon to eat my cereal (a rare occurence these days) or a bowl of soup, there is one spoon I favour above all the others. Do you have a favourite spoon?
A friend on FB posted this great clip of His Bobness back in 1979 – back when Bob could still sing the tune and play guitar. He’s always had great bands and this one is fabulous. AFAIK it’s Jim Keltner on drums, Spooner on the Wurly, Fred Tackett on guitar and it looks like Carl Radle on bass but maybe it’s Tim Drummond. And a great vocal quartet.
What I love about this is – well, everything. Great three chord song. Bob in classic voice. Fred Tackett’s rhythm and lead playing is just sublime. the BVs are classic soul. And Spooner gets a solo! AND it’s over seven minutes long on what was presumably prime time TV.
It’s not on YouTube so you’ll have to copy and paste one of these links. It’s worth it.
