Joe Liggins - Going Back To New Orleans b/w Ellis "Slow" Walsh- New Orleans Is My Home - Crawdad /Jukebox Jam 45
No city captured the hearts and minds of R&B musicians as the birthplace of Jazz - New Orleans. Even those who weren't directly affiliated with the Crescent City by birthright, such as Oklahoma born, Los Angeleno Joe Liggins, still strove to pay tribute and invoke the near mythical N'awlins spirit in their music.
And 'Going Back to New Orleans' is a fitting and authentic tribute indeed - running the rhythmic gamut through dixieland jazz, rumba and rock and roll all in this one action-packed number. In actuality, the song is a reworked cover of Ellis 'Slow' Walsh's original 'New Orleans Is My Home', itself a fine, fine piece of work which is featured here on the flip side.
