I do this dance after every bowel movement. After all, wasn't it W.H. Auden who said:

"To start the morning

with a satisfactory dump

is a good omen

all our adult years."

 

And wasn't it Dave who said:

"To find ecstasy everywhere

is the mark of the truly mature."

In 1973 Spencer Davis sounded like a record should sound that time. Good hard rocking music. But no success. The fans still waiting for Stevies comeback.

Marker:

"Between 1953 and 1974 the Vicksburg-based Red Tops entertained legions of dancers with their distinctive mix of blues, jazz, and pop. Under the strict direction of drummer and manager Walter Osborne, the group developed a devoted fan base across Mississippi and neighboring states. Most of the ten original members had played with an earlier Vicksburg band, the Rebops. Vocalist Rufus McKay’s rendition of “Danny Boy” was a crowd favorite." —Mississippi Blues Commission

 

Rufus McKay obituary

"Rufus Mckay, lead singer of the Vicksburg, Mississippi–based The Red Tops, died on July 20, 2014, at River Region Medical Center in Vicksburg. McKay was born in Vicksburg on October 15, 1926, to Sarah and Cleveland McKay. In the 1950s, McKay was a member of The Rebops, a band that later reformed as the popular Mississippi dance band The Red Tops. The band performed for both white and black audiences across Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas and Tennessee. McKay’s rendition of Danny Boy was a highlight of the band’s show. In the early 1960s McKay and saxophonist/bassist Andy Hardwick left the band to form the more blues and R&B–oriented band The Fabulous Corvettes. In the 1970s McKay moved to Las Vegas and sang with The Ink Spots. McKay returned to Vicksburg in 2000 and performed occasional guest spots and reunions. Rufus McKay was 87." —Kayla Marion, Living Blues

4534. What a wonderful photo - terrific expressions, all three. Young men in their prime, out on the tiles. To tell the truth, never been there, and we're not sure whether this Johnnies Bar and the "Snake Pit' referred to earlier are one and the same place - but I guess we'll find out.

 

I hope Graeme won't mind me sharing this Hume Highway story, which was really written really as a bit of casual e-mail chatter between outselves, Graeme, Kooka and Kim Dunstan actually. But I don't think he will mind my sharing and, and it may rings some bells ... We'll call it:

 

THE HIGHWAY TO HELL

 

Graeme writes...

 

Another Johnnies' story. ( mainly for its location). At various times I was based in Cerberus ( FND as we knew it). Most of this time cars were hard to come by and public transport more so. Various enterprising 'matelots' would buy a new six seater car on Time payment or Hire Purchase.

 

Then each weekend they would charge other sailors for the trip from FND to Sydney or to Adelaide ( less so). I think the return 'fare' was five pounds in 1956.

The idea was to allow said sailors to visit family - or in my case, more likely, girlfriend.

Friday afternoon we had Divisions and march past on the parade. When this was over Leave began. If the group was well organised you went straight from parade to car. One driver five (5) passengers ( steering column gear change and front bench seat, no seat belts. We'd be on our way about 1400?

 

We would flog furiously up the Hume Highway all night. Most owner/drivers refused to have any reliefs on the wheel. Whereever we fuelled we'd buy a pie and a drink. No hamburgers - took too long. Many the time I saw an indicated 100mph on the straights past Seymour and Benalla. About once a month there would be a wipe-out from the 40-50 odd cars in this Grand Prix. People were killed.

 

We'd reach Johnnies about 0500 plus or minus. We'd all head off either by arrangement with some friend or by public transport - in uniform and looking fairly fragile.

On Sunday afternoon, we'd meet outside Johnnies for the return run - NO LATER that 1500! If you were not there the car went without you because the powers that be were brutal in their punishments for people who did not cross the Police Office line before 0730.

 

One of the blokes that did this often was known as 'Rebop' Golotta. He was a PTI and I think I've noted his name of reasonably late in something to do with the Olympic mob in Oz. He'd be 75-6 now. I often used to think that by the time the car was paid off it'd be stuffed. In 1958 I bought a Goggomobil [ not the dart ] but I didn't try to weekend trip to Sydney with it - can't recall why not...."

Vicksburg, Mississippi (est. 1825, pop. (2013) 23,542) • MS Delta

 

Marker:

"The Red Tops were the most popular band in Mississippi during an era when nightlife centered on the dance floor and couples and hopeful singles donned their finest clothes for evenings out on the town. The group, part of a long line of dance bands in Vicksburg, started during World War II as the Rebops. On weekends the Rebops played on Morrissey’s Showboat, a barge moored on DeSoto Island on the Louisiana side of the Mississippi River, where alcohol laws were less strict than in Mississippi. Under the leadership of drummer Walter Osborne, the Rebops reorganized as the Red Tops. Their first performance was at the Sequoia Hills Club in Bovina, just east of Vicksburg, on June 20, 1953. The majority of the Red Tops’ performances over the course of their history were for white audiences at venues including country clubs, restaurants, ballrooms, high schools, and colleges across Mississippi as well as in Louisiana, Arkansas, and Tennessee. In Vicksburg these included the Vicksburg Auditorium, site of an annual New Year’s Eve dance; the Hotel Vicksburg; and the “BB Club,” housed at this location in the elaborate quarters of the B’nai B’rith Literary Association.

 

"The group also performed regularly for African American audiences at clubs including the Blue Room in Vicksburg, Stevens Rose Room in Jackson, Ruby’s Night Spot in Leland, the Harlem Inn in Winstonville, the Plaza Hotel in Greenwood, and various Elks lodges. They were joined on occasion by blues harmonica great Sonny Boy Williamson II or the Knights, a local doo-wop group that included future blues recording artist Terry Evans. Saxophonist/bassist Anderson “Andy” Hardwick, the youngest of the Red Tops, spent many summers touring with various national artists, including Lowell Fulson, B.B. King, Otis Redding, Fats Domino, and James Brown. In the early ‘60s Hardwick and vocalist Rufus McKay left the Red Tops and formed the Fabulous Corvettes, a band whose repertoire was more blues and R&B-oriented than the Red Tops’.

 

"Most Red Tops performances were on weekends, as all of the members had full-time day jobs. Unlike most bands, the Red Tops operated very strictly as a business, with detailed ledgers, annual audits, and bookings often scheduled a year in advance. Their matching uniforms were tailor-made, members were subject to regular inspections and rules of conduct, and rehearsals were held every Monday evening at the YMCA on Jackson Street. The Red Tops stopped performing regularly in the mid-‘70s but reunited on a number of special occasions. Multi-instrumentalist Andy Hardwick continued performing regularly as a jazz pianist, while Rufus McKay moved to Las Vegas and sang with Stanley Morgan’s Ink Spots and other vocal groups before returning to Vicksburg in 2000." —Mississippi Blues Commission
