#TrackoftheDay: “The Ghost of Smokey Joe”

Cab Calloway
USA (1939)

Cab Calloway

See, you know Cab Calloway. Because being a sophisticated, cultured individual–and by reading this site, I know you are one–you’ve seen The Blues Brothers. And you remember him performing “Minnie the Moocher.” This track is back from 1939 and brings the “Hi-de-highness” into Halloween’s territory. Classic stuff.
