1000 SONGS - DAY 266 SONG # 297

Day 266: Some More Zydeco Songs

We had a Zydeco version of "Knocking on Heavens Door" as the last track on this here blog. This was the milk for the beginners. Now we go on with the real stuff (way down yonder in good ol' Louisiana). Proudly introducing Clifton Chenier, the one and only king of Zydeco, with a fine version of his seminal "I'm coming home", featuring such a lot of rhythmic finesse on the washboard as you had ever wished of a Zydeco combo. And then, we have another one of those ol' boys, the one who wrote the song and, consequently, did the first recording of it, in 1984: Don't Mess with  my Toot Toot, by the one an only Rockin' Sidney. An then, we have Rockin Sidney's "You Ain't Nothing but Fine" in the true version. Have a good time, good ol fellas! Lots of "one and only" & "good ol'" in this post, I apologise.
