Hump Day Hymns

DOWN TO NEW ORLEANS FOR BIT OF THIS AND A BIT OF THAT

Steely Dan
Each Wednesday JamBase offers you a pair of tunes to get you over the hump and on your way to the weekend. One song deals with fiscal matters and the other explores the seamier side of the hump, so to speak. Today we follow the slapping river waters to the city of New Orleans where Allen Toussaint runs down the folly of the numbers game with "What Is Success?" and Steely Dan offers tribute to the red light ladies who take a sailor's pay and leave him with a smile on "Pearl of the Quarter" from sophomore album Countdown To Ecstasy.
