O’SATURDAY SPIN by Snuppy

Top o’ the mornin and begosh and begora, it’s Saint Patty’s Day.  Yes it tis.  And I don’t have a proper post prepared, no I don’t.  Partly because we have been iced under here in the Northeast and my stuffy head took that as a sign to sleep – early and long. 

I could go on and feature an Irish group and give you all sorts of information about them, but I won’t do that either.  Because, had I mentioned I slept a little too long?  This post won’t be up until noon at that rate.  Instead, I’ll offer a pairing that is a perfect blend – Ziggy Marley and The Chieftans.  This further advances Scissors’ claim that there are many similarities of inhabitants or ancestors from these two islands, but I digress.   They are indeed a perfect blend.

We will return to our regularly scheduled Spin next week and perhaps put a little effort into it.  For now, enjoy your day, have a little corned beef, do a jig to a reel or whatever it is you might be doing.  And whatever that is, have a great weekend!

Comment by BoBo

That was great! Really, I would have never thought Ziggy and Irish music would mesh at all. 🙂 I hope you guys have a great weekend and thaw out well!

Thanks Bobo and cj – glad you liked. They do make great sounds together. cj: we must seem like wimps to you Midwesterners and the truth is – we are.

Have a great weekend.

I agree with the above. That’s my favorite Bob Marley song and the Chieftans are great, and its cool that Ziggy sounds so much like his father. I wish you an Irish 7-course supper and may the six-pack be kosher.

I know this doesn’t make me unusual or anything, but I used to listen to the original version of this song on an 8-track, stoned out of my sorry little mind. I thought you should know that about me.
