The time was November 17, 1989. The place was JJ's Blues Cafe in Mountain View, California. Singer-songwriter Richard Berry was in town for a special performance. Richard's son Marcel Berry played bass, and sax player Michael Rivinius brought his band The Simplistics to back up this musical legend.
This footage was shot by Eric Predoehl for the upcoming documentary THE MEANING OF LOUIE under less-than-ideal situations. The lighting was terrible, and the camera wasn't very forgiving.
Nonetheless, we've got a very rare performance of LOUIE LOUIE by the man who actually wrote this song. What makes this particular clip so special is the audience interaction. Richard walked around the club with a microphone, inviting audience members to sing LOUIE LOUIE with him. One gentlemen did some really great yodeling.
If you are the "mystery yodeler" or know who this person is, please send me a private message to LOUIE at LouieLouie.net.
