Song of the Day #2008

Song of the Day: Better Call Saul (“Blackbird Special”) is credited to The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, on whose 1984 album, “My Feet Can’t Fail Me Now” this track appears [YouTube link]. A funkier version appears as a live cut by drummer Stanton Moore on the 2008 album,”Take it to the Street (The Music)!” It’s that version that we hear in Season 5, Episode 5 (“Dedicado a Max”) in BCS, which first aired on March 16, 2020. It’s used as the musical backdrop to Saul’s efforts to delay the demolition of a client’s house by throwing every legal and extra-legal obstacle in the way. Check out the full version here and the accompanying scene [YouTube links].
