The first single from Joey's new album. Some reviewer on Amazon said that Joey
sings this with a sincerity that Louis Armstrong missed. Whatever. You can't
compare them. They're both legends singing two totally different versions of a song
for two totally different generations. To say Joey's is better is sacrilege, but
I think Louis would have appreciated how he rocks it in his own way.
To do the intro, by the way, play the low strings and then the high strings
of each chord. I don't want to hear people split hairs over the seventh chords or
minor chords--this is a punk song, after all. Satchmo's version is a bit more
complex and smoother-sounding. But still, if anyone wants to change this, go
right ahead. Search for the rest of the album that I posted here--it's a great CD.
