Professor Longhair - Rum And Coca-Cola

This is the other end of the mood spectrum from the cut below.  FUN, writ large, in the universal language of music.

'Fess was way too much altogether.  "What key do you like to play in?"  'Fess considers the question and says, "well, I probably play in all of 'em."  He sure plays the hell out of "Rum and Coca-Cola," forwards, backwards and inside out for good measure.

He's been gone now for quite a while, and things sure have changed.  I don't want to start criticizing modern music, but I don't really have to, now do I?  You know what I was going to say.
