Uncle John, I ain't even the beginnings of a pimple on the ass of the late great Mississippi Fred McDowell!  LOL .  Thanks for the love, y'all.  I'm trying to get through a lot of the NOLA Footage.  More stuff to come soon.

Good timing.  I was just listening to Mississippi Fred's version of this.   Man, your version is excellent and almost up there with Fred's.
