    I’m digging the rediscovery of Ernie K-doe due to the Boots ad. Now that you’ve been clued in to some great New Orleans music, dig around some more — there’s other great K-doe tunes,check out Earl King (Trick Bag), Willie T, Eddie Bo, on & on. Come down here (to New Orleans) and see what’s happening here; the music lives on.

    Cheers for the comments, must admit the boots advert did introduce me to the Ernie K doe track, but I love the rest of the New Orelans funk. I Will carry on digging though as there always some other hidden gems!.
