Struttin My stuff # 23 - He was nothing but a Hound Dog

Greetings all!
Back after a long summerbreak with  Struttin My StuffMOANIN and GROANIN Radio´s eclectic music show to sooth your body and soul. 
From now on we will even be more eclectic by throwing - among other things -  Celtic stuff in the mix, as well as some of my favorite singer-songwriters from all over the globe, mostly to cool things down a bit at the end of a show.(This time it´s Bob Dylan´s personal no. 1, Townes van Zandt.). 
The Celtic touch comes from County Donegal, Ireland and is called Skara Brae.  Skara Brae is the former group of the amazing Dhomhnaill family: sisters Tríona  and  Maighread Ní Dhomhnaill plus their brother Mícheál Ó Domhnaill. After the break up of Skara Brae in ´72, Triona and Mícheál became (founding) members of the famous Bothy Band, one the most important groups for the ´reinvention´ of Irish traditional music in the seventies.  
The  version of the traditionall Dónal Óg on this show comes from a Skara Brae reunion concert in 2004, with amazing lead vocals by Maighread.

Sadly Micheal Ó Domhnaill.passed away in 2006, after a fall in his home.
Which brings me to the first four songs of this show, all (co) written by Hound Dog Jerry Leiber, who passed away last month to meet Elvis, Big Mama Thorton and the rest. Come to think of it - almost all artists on this show are dead. (Little Richard: "Me dead?´Í´m gonna rip it up!") Mmmmm. Anyway, may their music make you feel alive and kicking!

Have fun with the show.
