    Ooh, this is neat Paul. As a long time fan of Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band, I got to know Kid Creole & The Coconuts because of August Darnell. I really enjoy this band’s sound and dance rhythms. And you flat-out amaze me since this was requested just yesterday. You always come through with the requests. Great follow up to yesterday’s awesome post!!! It sounds like Summer here on Burning The Ground for sure!!!

    OMG Paul! I remember requesting this particular song. Extremely popular in the Philippines in the early 80s. Brought back a lot of memories. Thank You very much! Stay safe.

    I knew it! Paul, you have such broad taste and if not for yourself, you are enabling enjoyments for the wellbeing of others 😉
    Thank you very much. Kid Creole is a league on his own. Great performer, musician, writer and producer. Have a lot of his work on vinyl from my teens and you managed to provide one of the missing pieces. Again. I was not happy today, but you let the silver lining spark on the cloud above my head.
