Louisiana Two Step

Today have a sort of mini Single Song Sunday minus roughly six songs including the Mandatory Reggae Version (and, indeed, minus Sunday).

Randy Newman's original version of "Louisiana 1927" is pretty good by most standards. But put it next to this magnificent live post-Katrina version by New Orleans' own John Boutté and it pales by comparison. 

"Louisiana 1927" - Randy Newman

"Louisiana 1927" - John Boutté

One thing I can tell you about John Boutté - he likes to shake, shake, shake.
