Star Revue!

There are way too many great Allen Toussaint songs to really pick a favorite, but if I were forced to narrow it down to one, Warren Lee's - Star Revue might be it. This is also one of the greatest name-check songs of all time!

Yep, one of the greatest. I first came across this record about 30 years ago on one of those Lost Nite Jerry Blavat LPs and loved it at first hearing. In those pre internet days it took me the longest time to find anything at all about Warren Lee or the record itself(except of course that I figured any record that gives a shout-out to Irma Thomas must be a New Orleans record).

These days, all is well...
