God's Pocket Jukebox - #13 - Tommy Ridgley - Looped (1952)

A stalwart of the post war New Orleans Rhythm & Blues scene, the pianist and singer recorded this tune for Imperial, who had cut his first records in 1949. He also recorded some great R&B for Decca, Atlantic and a host of smaller labels, but we like this performance as much as any for its lazy energy.
