Lil’ Queenie & The Percolators – My Darlin’ New Orleans

Happy Birthday Li’l Queenie. One of our city’s great soul singers turns 64 today.

Let’s pass the mic to Bunny Matthews who had this to say in an old Times Pic piece: “She cut her hair with fingernail clippers…She was dying her hair crimson red before the punk thing really hit here. Everybody was pretty hippie; she was different. … she’s proof that you can come from Old Metairie and have soul.”
