IRMA THOMAS - HITTIN' ON NOTHING


I've wanted to feature this one for a long time, but the copy I had was just in really horrible sounding condition (this is a notorious hard record to find). However, on my recent Chicago trip I found a near mint copy so its' perfect to feature! What a great record it is! Not only is it a typically great N'awlins jam, but I love the fact that it's so brazenly sexual! You tell him, Irma!

from 1962...

That's been a fave song of mine for awhile. Does anyone know what she says after, 'I ain't seen mink wrap a rabbit, yet'? *lol* I may have that part wrong too.

Thanks
