The Gator Creek Band – “Dirty Boogie”

R-1898521-1498561004-2211.jpeg

I have always been a fan of music, and have always loved Clint Eastwood and Jessica Walters in all of their movies.

The movie “Play Misty for Me” is one of the very first movies that proved that women aren’t as innocent as some pretend to be, and can be a Fatal Attraction as men can be!

Gator Creek  Band a band out of Venice, Florida recorded a beautiful dance song that was a perfect fit for the movie, “Play Misty for Me!”  This band consisted of the following:

Line up 1 (1970)

 

– Allen Beutler — sax, flute

 

– Dee Barton (RIP 2001) – vocals, keyboards

 

– Mike Deasy — lead guitar, vocals 

 

– Kathy Deasy — vocals, percussion 

 

– Kenny Loggins — vocals, guitar

 

– Ray Neapolitan — bass 

 

– Mike O’Martin (aka Michael Omartian) — keyboards

 

 – Gene Pello — drums, percussion

 

They created a fun dance song under “Mercury Records;” titled Dirty Boogie (instrumental)   (Dee Barton). One of the most beautiful, fun songs I have ever heard.

Played in the opening sequence of the movie “Play Misty For Me” while Clint is driving in his Jaguar XK150 down the coast on California State Route 1 at Big Sur and across the Bixby Creek Bridge!

I love turning this song up as loud as I can and just losing myself in the music.

I hope you enjoy this song as much as I did when I first heard it!

  1. The song is great! I could listen to again, but it would be better to be driving Eastwood’s Jaquar outside of Big Sur (actually there in 1979). Great movie, and Jessica Walters was scary indeed.

  2. Sorry I doubled reply…During a break at Church, I replied but it didn’t show going through so I did it again…Lol now I’m making it worse by doing it again.

  3. Wow, I forgot about this song. Awesome rhythm to it. It’s been around 10 years since I saw the movie. I always loved the movie and I remember when it was played.
