We have been watching Keith Beasley’s new video for his (old) song “Heat Of The Night”.
It appears on Keith’s album – “Highways Hobos & Heroes” [Available for download on many sites including iTunes and Amazon].
It was written by Keith and recorded in 2005 – with a whole bunch of fine musicians – all of whom are credited at the end of the short film.
A sloppy-joe sandwich of sad-eloquent
harmonica (Kenny Mann) and bluesy keys (Lyndsey Lee) creates an echoing portico of rhythms through which Keith (with his guitar) delivers his guttural pouches of voice. And takes his hat off… a lot.
Gravel throated, gritty and dusty road – this is, of course, a fantasy Dylanesque number …
Full of mystery – like a folk ritual-
Perhaps it alludes to the courtship rituals of an exotic princess –
before her final death-kiss arrives.
