Jump in My Car
- The Ted Mulry Gang
- Chris Spedding
- Year Released
Chris Spedding didn’t write this song. The Ted Mulry Gang did. But I chose to post this performance instead because visually and musically it’s a really interesting mashup of several decades. I find it particularly interesting because Spedding was known as a versatile session guitarist who could play any style of rock and roll and so this crossover of different genres is all too fitting.
Notice how Spedding is wearing a pink 50’s Rockabilly style suit a la Elvis, playing in front of a crowd of screaming girls reminiscent of the Beatles in the 60’s, and playing on a massive steel frame with his band segregated across it, characteristic of the stadium rock that the 70’s would carry into the 80’s. It’s rock music served four different ways!
