We’re enjoying a smoggy early summer afternoon in New Orleans 9th Ward by listening to Eldridge Holmes’ ‘Gone Gone Gone’
This is 9th Ward Daily Photo no. 1,364
Put on Harry “Big Daddy” Hypolite’s ‘For Better Or Worse’ this morning and think of what might have been. Big Daddy was zydeco king Clifton Chenier’s sideman for eight years. He died in a car crash on this day in 2005.
Bopping Lee Dorsey’s ‘Ride Your Pony’ and getting the smoker fired up in the backyard. Happy Juneteenth Y’all.
