EDDIE BO - EVERY DOG GOT HIS DAY
...and let's hope all you DOGS get your day in this new year; have a happy one!
When it comes down to it, there's something about a good Eddie Bo 45 that just screams of good times and gives a good feeling all around, and this one drives that point home into the new year and beyond. This record is especially cool as it is (I think) the earliest example that has that wild style of polyrhythmic drumming that later became a Bo staple. This record sounds VERY advanced for 1960!
Plus, I need to make up for a goof in yesterday's post that was pointed out by a friend of mine- Jean Wells was not from NOLA but Florida (I had a small brain lapse and confused Jean Wells with jean Knight); there is no doubt that Eddie Bo was from New Orleans.
