Caravan With Thumbs

Thumbs Carllile - Caravan (2:03)

If you're going to listen to only one country jazz version of Caravan today, I nominate the Thumbs Carllile version, recorded for the LP Roger Miller Presents Thumbs Carlille. Yes, his name was misspelled on the LP, as it often was throughout his life. At the time of the album's release, he was playing guitar in Miller's band.

And I hope you didn't miss the Thumbs video clip posted here the other day.

Thank you! Not to toot my own horn, but fans of this might also enjoy the totally amazing 'Ferlin Husky' version here:

Not a problem. That's a damn fine record and one I'd never heard. Thanks!
