I'm so tired....

While people will continue celebrating through much of the night, according to the Catholic liturgical calendar Carnival ends at sundown. Strictly speaking, it's time to trade in the beads for ashes. Most years I'm in bed very early on Fat Tuesday. In fact, can hardly think of anything else after several days of of little or no sleep.

Here's an Eddie Bo tune that like many of his non-funk cuts doesn't get heard all that often. It's also a song which possibly mimes it's subject just a little too well, but from the first note you'd have to be deaf not to know there's some seriously killer guitar work ahead.

This is the first time the name "Eddie Bo" appears on a 45.

Hope ya'll enjoy....


  1. So I'm feeling crappy (health-wise) on a Saturday morning and I'm just browsing to kill time and I see "The Singing Bones" on somebody's Link List. So I pop over here and find TWO! (count 'em TWO!) Eddie Bo songs that were completely unknown to me. I've never proclaimed to be an Eddie Bo expert, but I love his stuff.

    You made my day seriously! It's Christmas in March for me. Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. You made my day with your comment Anon...thanks.
