Louisiana 1923

I depart to the States tomorrow to celebrate Mrs SP’s “40th” birthday. Our first port of call is Galveston followed by a saunter along the Louisiana gulf coast to New Orleans.

For the reasons in Martin Simpson’s introduction this, however, is my themed pick for Friday Song. Interestingly I saw him in 1975 and bought the album he mentions, “Golden Vanity”, in the foyer of St Georges Hall, Bradford. At the time I had not heard the Randy Newman original neither the Neville Brothers excellent cover. I never mastered it on the guitar either.

For that reason alone this remains my favourite of the 3.

See you in a fortnight.
