I have at least five of your LPs from the '50s and later. Heard you and your band play at a bar about 25 miles N/NW of Chicago. Can't remember the year but was it the only USA tour you ever made? My favorite all time cut in my Chris Barder Collection is "Tishomingo Blues". I'd like to find out where I can get the lyrics to another favorite..."Papa De-da-da" You're my last hope in pointing me in the right direction.
Thank you in advance for whatever help you provide.
Just came across your request on the message board. I know it's from nearly a year ago, but if you are still looking...
The 1931 recording of Papa DDD by Clarence Williams and his Jazz Kings, complete with vocal, is available on CD: Clarence Williams 'Whoop It Up', Frog DGF17.
cheers, Chris Kennedy.
Email me and I'll e-mail you the lyric for Papa-Dee-Da-Da
