There's a Video Break in the Road: Betty Harris Bonus Beats

Posted by on Fri, Mar 27, 2009 at 1:00 PM

It's Friday, I'm hungover and I'm completely resigned to not getting a helluva lot done. I also feel like I might not have accurately conveyed how awesome Betty Harris is and how cool it is that The Dynamites are working with her. But you know what accurately relays the rad-ness of Ms. Harris? YouTube videos. .Lots and lots of YouTube videos. Super-soul shake down after the jump.*

Ride Your Pony

Love Lots of Lovin with Lee Dorsey

Hook Line N Sinker/Show It

Cry To Me

I Don't Want To Hear It

Trouble With My Lover

And because we always strive for a local angle, here's Batty's mentor and Jackson, Tenn., native Big Maybelle doing a late-career cover of ? & The Mysterians' "96 Tears." So. Fucking. Good.

*For some odd reason there isn't an embedable clip of "Mean Man"--which total bullshit. Way to suck, internet.
