Being my travels down those great two lane highways of this nation as well as news I learn about them from media sources. Since I'm also very interested in historic preservation, there will be a lot of that as well.

Music from the Movie "The Big Easy"
Taken from my "The Big Easy" soundtrack album. //// These are the songs that turned me on to Mardia Gras, New Orleans and Louisiana Music: IKO IKO-- Dixie Cups // TIPITINA-- Professor Longhair // MA 'TIT FILLE-- Buckwheat Zydeco //// COLINDA-- Zachary Richard // TELL IT LIKE IT IS-- Aaron Neville & the Neville Brothers // ZYDECO GRIS GRIS-- Beausoleil //// OH YEH YAI-- Terrance Simien & the Mallet Playboys // HEY HEY (INDIANS COMIN')-- The Wild Tchoupitoulas // CLOSER TO YOU-- Dennis Quaid // SAVIOUR, PASS ME NOT-- The Swan Silvertones. //// Before the movie, I had just heard of "Iko Iko" and "Tell Iy Like It Is." Dennis Quaid was the star of the movie. An unknown, to me, John Goodman was also in the movie. //// Really Turned Me On. --RoadDog
