Marcia Ball -- Louisiana's Hot Tamale Baby

Shout out to Big Ray who I believe DeucE said is back in South Carolina, if true then I can get back to calling him SC Ray just 'cause it's one cool nickname in Jb & Skip's book, dig? So Ray, grab one of those lovely ladies in your household and get to dancing with Ms. Ball on vocals and piano, David Murray on guitar, Don Bennett on bass and the late, great Doyle Bramhall on drums, circa 1985 or should I say from back in the day...

It's Raining -- Lou Ann Barton

Wonder if DeucE remembers this Allen Toussaint gem from his NOLA days, given his propensity for the finer things in life, bet he'd remember those legs too if he ever got to see Ms. Lou Ann perform back in the day...

Steve Winwood -- Back In The High Life

This one's for the L'Man, slow to warm up this morning my friend so I put on my "new" Winwood vinyl (picked up "Back In The High Life" and "Roll With It" for a quarter apiece the other day), got me working on some old dance moves and what a sight, just ask Skip, Bella and Alexis. Perhaps the simple life is the high life...

Boz Scaggs -- From "My Time"

Tune called "We're Gonna Roll" from his 1972 release, while much of this wonderful album was recorded in Muscle Shoals, this track was recorded in San Francisco, the horns are spot on and George Rains on drums simply nails it. Picked it up on vinyl yesterday with not a single scratch for all of $0.25. For it's the simple things in life that seem to really hit home these days...

Fats Domino -- Ain't That A Shame

Today's news sure is... Before Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Jerry Lee, and Elvis among others, there was Antoine "Fats" Domino, Jr. The rest is history... RIP Fat Man.

Frankie Miller -- I'd Lie To You For Your Love

Scored two vintage Frankie Miller albums the other day for all of six bucks. Reminded me that I was busy with the "career" when tragedy struck the Rock back in the day but before it did, he was no doubt one of the best...

A tip of the hat to NOLA with a BB King tune for lagniappe, thanks DeucE...

Grace And The Mule -- Call It Intuition

Never really made this connection that I recall but I'm back playing my drums (thanks to Matt Attack and to Bassman Evan) and I've always liked sitting in the back, not really to goof mind you like some but more to take it all in and lads, methinks there's no better view than from the drum kit on this particular combination...
