In 1979 , I began recording an album that I never released. It contained a few real gems. On a recent trip back to The States, I liberated a couple of 2″ tapes. This is one of the pieces from that album, lovingly brought back to life, and featuring some really outstanding talent. With Paul Griffin on Hammond B3, and some serious vocal performances by John Belushi and Genya Ravan.
The original 2″ tape was dutifully baked and digitized, then we went to work crafting what you are listening to now. Much time and effort were put into getting the mix just right. I wanted the listener to hear every little nuance of every instrument and voice.

3 minutes and 17 seconds of the blues, the bayou, fun and joy. Simple as that.
As ever, groove on.
