ST. JAMES INFIRMARY | #BOTB RESULTS

23 CommentsBattle of the Bands (BOTB), Link Ups, Music

Welcome back! It’s time (actually overdue) to announce results for the July 1st BOTB post.
Sorry I’m late! (See below) 

Battle of the Bands BOTB, ST. JAMES INFIRMARY

BATTLE OF THE BANDS (BOTB), hosted by StMcC Presents Battle of the Bands. is where you listen to different recordings of the same song and vote for the one you like best. Two “Battles” per month, on the 1st and 15th. Votes will be tallied and posted the following week.

♫ This contest featured bands from opposite sides of the Atlantic ♫

Not the greatest turnout for this one, but that’s no surprise on a summer holiday weekend. Thanks to everyone who made the time. I’m sorry I got bogged down in the morass of web redesign (see below) and didn’t get a chance to make the rounds. For awhile, it looked like the Animals would devour the White Stripes, but fortunately, that didn’t happen. Still, it was a decisive victory. We had one “write-in” vote for Louis Armstrong by author Karen Lynn. A rebel; I like that! 🙂 Here’s the voting breakdown. (Looks naked without the pie chart. I’ll try and think of some other way to jazz it up for the future.)

ERIC BURDON & THE ANIMALS:
Birgit, Cathy, Diedre, Jeffrey, John, Mary, Michele, Mike, Myke, Pat, Shady
Total: 11

THE WHITE STRIPES:
Arlee, C.W. Martin, Cherdo, Dixie, Guilie, Stephen
Total: 6

Once again, my vote is moot, but I’m choosing Eric. What a voice! I’ve been a fan of his even longer than my other fave, John Kay. Eric feels the blues right down to his toes and can still belt them out at age 73!

and the winner is:
ERIC BURDON & THE ANIMALS
by 6 votes

Here’s some concert footage I took of Eric Burdon in November 2014.
Didn’t I tell you he could still belt out the blues? 🙂

Don’t forget to check back with the others for their BOTB results:

NEXT BATTLE OF THE BANDS WILL BE JULY 15th.

I’m not sure whether or not I’ll be there. It’s been a rough few days and I’m suffering a severe case of internet fatigue. My website had a meltdown and in a fit of pique, I decided to redesign it from scratch. It was going along fairly well, especially considering I have no formal training in web design and backend coding, (thank you, Google!) until I hit the proverbial wall. Certain things wouldn’t function the way I needed them to, despite trying various methods. Exhausted and bleary-eyed, I shelved the whole thing and fixed the old design. It’s obsolete and needs to be modernized, but I’ll try again later in the year. Apologies to those whose comments and posts I have missed! Hubby and I are leaving on a three-day road trip in the morning and the blog will be on vacation for awhile, too. Thanks for your understanding.

  1. Glad Eric won. And boy, he sings the blues so fine! That piano is sweet too. Good concert footage you got there!

    Sorry that you’re having website issues. That’s never fun. But shelving it for awhile is sometimes the best thing to do…
    Hope you have a wonderful road trip! Sounds fun. I need one of those!

    Be safe out there and have a blast! 🙂

    1. Thanks, Michele. I’m responding to comments, but won’t be posting anything new for awhile. Sometimes, a break is needed to re-energize. We had a wonderful weekend, driving north to see The Hollywood Vampires in concert. Fantastic show! I read this morning that Joe Perry collapsed during the Staten Island concert. :O I hope he will be okay.

  2. I’m glad they won because as soon as he opens his mouth and sings, I drool. I hope you have a great log weekend away. Are you hightailing it to the Niagara region or cottage country? We are venturing to Quebec (on the Richelieu river) for a week.

  3. Hi, Debbie the Doglady!

    If I knew you allowed write-in votes I would have cast mine for rowdy rocker Pat Boone. 🙂 Nobody… but nobody shouts the blues or covers Metallica like the Patster! 🙂

    I am happy to learn that Eric Burdon won the battle by a six point margin and that your ears matched mine. Burdon made a believer out of me all those years ago at the Shady Dell and he definitely delivered the goods on “SJI.”

    I’m very sorry to learn that you hit the wall trying to revamp your site. I came over a couple of times during the last few days to check out the new design and didn’t notice much difference. I’m glad I didn’t put my foot in my mouth by complimenting you on your “new look.” 🙂 You need some time to clear your head and your weekend getaway and the Hollywood Vamps show should help.

    Stay safe and enjoy the trip and concert. I’ll be connecting with you again soon, dear friend Debbie!

    1. Hi, Shady; The new design looked more modern (same colour scheme) but certain key features just wouldn’t work right, so, back to square one. 😛 I’ve been a fan of Eric’s since “House of the Rising Sun” came out in 1964. The man can sing! 😀 Did Pat Boone cover St. James Infirmary? 😉 Yes, it’s time for a break and I’m looking forward to the show. I’ll try and check out your intriguing new series tonight, or at least some time over the weekend. Thanks for coming by. Cheers!
