The Friday Song with Sam And Dave
“A man walks in a bar, hears a really cool tune, thinks that has to go on the Keener blog”.
Recurring theme, sounds like the beginning of a bad joke. Hey, it’s just part of my life!
And so it was last Monday, when I stopped at one of my favorite haunts, The Brown Boxer in Mad Beach, Florida, for the Monday Burger Special. (No fries, broccoli, please.) And while I’m waiting for lunch, Stax/Volt Records Dynamic Duo comes blazing over the speaker.
It’s Sam and Dave with 1965’s “You Don’t Know Like I Know”. One of those “forgotten 45’s“, written by the other Stax Dynamic Duo, Issac Hayes and David Porter, this was the song released before the breakthrough single “Hold On, I’m Comin“.
How “You Don’t Know..” peaked at #90 on the Hot 100 is beyond me. Enjoy a dynamite performance, and a great example of that Memphis Sound. It’s the Friday Song on Keener!
