Philip – “This week I have been mostly listening to....... New Orleans Rhythm and Blues.

So, without further ado, here are three little gems, purposely omitting anything by Fats Domino or Little Richard.”

Let The Good Times Roll by Shirley and Lee (1956). “You gotta love this, and I'm sure we'd all say hear-hear to the sentiment just now.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uM9yYL6BD-4

Downhome Girl by Alvin Robinson (1964). “A humorous Lieber and Stoller number covered by The Stones, but no-one sings it like Mr. Robinson. If this doesn't make you chuckle or at least raise a smile, I'd advise that you check the condition of your laughing gear.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=omnkh2OTtAk

Tell It Like It Is by Aaron Neville (1966). “Looks like a real hard case and sings like an angel... eat your heart out Art Garfunkel. The Neville Brothers were of course one of The Big Easy's most celebrated groups - find their 1984 live album "Neville-ization" if you possibly can.”

When I Hear My Name by The White Stripes – “…taken from live BBC Radio One John Peel Session. Picked up this LP of the show at the last VIP Record Fair and just keep on playing it. Proof, if it were needed, that Jack White is a bluesman!”
