Technical difficulties....

Sorry folks, I thought I was going to be able to post a 45 today but various pieces of equipment have been acting-up ever since we experienced damp conditions around the beginning of September.

I need to switch out amplifiers [again]. The last one I have is an un-rebuilt mid 50s mono tube amp. Not the worst thing in the world. I just don't like having to rely on it. All my other amps are making crackling noises.

Also, I just discovered that the ADC side of my sound card is fried. This means I can't rip anything on this computer until I buy an external unit.

Tomorrow I'll try ripping with the laptop.

It should work once I install the correct software.

Put them two triggermen on...

In through my nose and out through my mouth....

Ya gotta be real to be a eastbank sista...

I haven't seen this clip in years.

Ya know, there are a very few select tunes which I consider quintessentially New Orleans, and this is def one of them.

I've owned the 12 inch Ep since I was 10.

It's the first record I ever bought with my own money.
