Clever little song from a clever little band.

From the only album I know with a cover in which a brilliant singer is lacing up his shoe.

How did this record get to be over 30 years old? Time, what the heck are you doing?

Ruth Brown Rhino Atlantic 1957
A major force in early 50s r&b.
Andrew Tibbs Rock Savoy, Rock (1951)
