I’ll open this last half of our Road Trip to New Orleans with a short musical History Lesson about events almost exactly two hundred years ago!
I’ll have a guy who was a child prodigy, writing his first song at age 8.
The funniest song here is by another guy who could sing like a girl…and a frog, lol!
Earning himself a nickname in the process.
I’ll finally get around to playing one by a female solo singer- I hadn’t noticed how top-heavy New Orleans was in that department, loaded with guys.
But for me, the centerpiece of this half hour is the very first song I ever heard by Dr. John back in 1968.
Back when he was known as the Night Tripper.
If you have heard it, maybe you’ll remember how mindblowing it was on that first listen…and many listens afterward.
If you have never heard it, well they are not at all necessary, but mind-altering substances can only enhance it, lol!
We’ll walk out of the city, and undoubtedly take another of these Road Trips in the future.
