- from her first solo LP "Playin' Possum" (1981/2) "I recorded it alone in my living room on a four track ... between diaper changes. At that point I had five kids, four of them under six, and one brand new"
Africa - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ci_u65I3gAI Generally, I would not be in favour of a five and a half minute 'Louie Louie'; or including it in a medley with 'Ode to Billie Joe'. From the 1968 LP "Music from Lil Brown" which was packaged as an answer to the Band's first album.
Listening to Ry Cooder & Richard Berry, I realized I knew nothing at all about the song except that it is permanently imprinted in my brain and decided to look it up. I had no idea that 'Louie Louie' is "the first-person story of a Jamaican sailor returning to the island to see his lady love." (Wikipedia) Kudos to Norman for not using the comma in between the two Louies.
