Tags: Happy Numbers Day, Jerry Lee Lewis, New Orleans, Sun Records
Happy Thursday. Happy Numbers Day here at MrSEC.com. Lotta numbers, digits and stats coming your way today, not to mention all the usual news and views.
As always, we start the day with the first song of the MrSEC iPod and today’s take is something yours truly could listen to for hours straight. Literally. Just loop it for hours.
Now, this isn’t the jump blues version made famous by Stick McGhee in 1949 and it’s not even Jerry Lee Lewis’ first version of the song from his Sun Records days in the 50s. Instead it’s a punchier remake from Lewis’ early-70s London sessions. It rocks much harder than his original cut. It’s the Killer at his finest.
And if you don’t have this version of this song in your collection, well, your collection’s lacking, son.
“Well I was down in New Orleans, everything’s fine. All of them cats a’drinking that wine. Drinking that mess is pure delight. And when they get they drunk, they singin’ all night.”
News coming soon…
