A Toussaint piano roll [with no piano?]

Some folks think this single was recorded in New Orleans even though it's clear that most [if not all] Joe Haywood singles issued on Deesu and White Cliffs were the result of licensing deals made by Marshall Sehorn through his long-standing connections in New York.

While it is strange that the record was first issued on Deesu, and only showed up some two years later on the Kent label as, (Play Me) A Cornbread Song......I'm still dubious of the claim to Crescent City origination.

Why? Well, let's just say I don't exactly hear what some others do.

But ya know, ultimately, who really cares?

Sometimes it's best to just play the record and enjoy.
