This old favourite about the delights of reefer smoking is given the New Orleans treatment by Herb Morand tpt and Albert Burbank clt, with Jim Robinson tbn, Lawrence Marrero bjo, Alcide Pavageau and white drummer Bill Matthews. Recorded at a private party in 1949 it's given a real earthy flavour thanks to some fine Burbank clarinet and Morand's vocal ( he sounds as if he's on it). Apologies for the blurry photo it was the only one I could find of these two together.
