Friday afternoon is finally here after a long work week and we’ve got Fats Domino’s “Little School Girl” on the Hi Fi here in the 9th Ward of New Orleans.

This song was the b-side to “You Done Me Wrong” and Dave Bartholomew was given a co-writing credit along with the Fat Man.

It was recorded at Cosimo’s studio on Rampart Street October 27 1953.

Eagle-eared listeners may be able to discern young legend Papoose Nelson on guitar. Nelson is one of the great, tragic figures in New Orleans music.
