Mother-In-Law! I remember the original but I forgot who did it. And Mardi Gras Mambo? The Meters?

Excellent covers.

Joe Ferry, awwww yeaaahh....
  Sat. 8/29/09 7:29pm Your DJ:

Ernie K-Doe had the hit with Mother in Law. And the original original version of Mardi Gras Mambo was, I think, by Art Neville but I played the Meters version.

Hi slugluv - yes, we saw Bregovic in the park this summer. It was an early highlight of the summer but it's the third time I've seen him now so I'm probably ready to move on!

wow! rebirth brass band and noka in the same set, I got me goosebumps, if you had played beau jocque I probably would have died, you know, like burping, farting, and sneezing at the same time. Holy smokes! Loved the "Levee Breakin" kicked my arse. Luv your shows too, keep the good vibrations kiddo.
