Oh Yeah, Oh Yeah He was Feeling so Good Today

Doug's got it right-- clearly inspired by Ida May's long distance call, he opened and closed with "Back in the U.S.A!"  This is a great version-- a clear indication why people still travel from miles around to hear him play his music.  There's the stirring introduction by Joe Edwards.  There's the brilliant one-liner about the tin cup.  And there's the surprise rendition of a great song he usually doesn't play anymore.  Then check out the solos-- first his own great one, then Bob Lohr, CBII, and the exchange with drummer Keith Robinson.  Not news but worth repeating that these Blueberry Hill shows are a brilliant chapter in his 60 year career.
