Such a great version of this song. It sounds like how the inside of my head feels.

Hey there!!
  11:24am Linda Lee:

hey there! love that farm song, since i live on an old farmstead. i'm looking at the old red barn right now! (100 miles from nyc.)
  11:40am David in ATL from NJ:

Is New Orleans music the best or what?
  11:46am Linda Lee:

thank you for the link to the Collector's Weekly article on cassette culture from back in June. i treasure my piles of cassettes & appreciate the context. also love the links to real material!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47am Ken From Hyde Park:

It appears that a new Allen Toussaint album is in the works for 2016: www.nola.com...
  11:47am Linda Lee:

one of the nicest live shows i recall was seeing Roy Orbison at the Lone Star Cafe' in NYC, early 80s. hearing that voice up close .. unreal. beautiful!
  11:58am Linda Lee:

also saw Tom Petty up close at the Bottom Line, right after the first record. a great, raw show! very high energy. we were right up close. can't forget the way he pointedly flirted with my 16 year old companion throughout the show. no tryst resulted, but she was thrilled.
  12:01pm Linda Lee:

alas, i've never felt so homely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:03pm Melissa Jean:

good mornin!
  12:13pm Caldwel Tom:

RUSH. 40 plus years and counting. Geddy and Alex, middle school buds. Neil, right there since joining. These three guys are tight. Maybe because there's only three of them, but, still defeinitely friends. Just sayin'.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17pm Ken From Hyde Park:

One of theirs that I like but don't hear very often is "Louisiana Rain."

American Girl is a great song. My 3 kids sang it to me for my 50th birthday.

Avatar 12:51pm Dano59:

Lee Dorsey - one of Warren's favorite artists as I recall.
Avatar 12:54pm Dano59:

I'm sure I have a lot of Allen Toussaint productions but not many records he made as an artist. Must rectify that.
