Have You Ever Met That Funny Reefer Man?

This cd is one of my all-time favorites. It includes Cab's first recording of Reefer Man as well as Angeline, Old Man of the Mountain, and Eadie Was a Lady. It also includes Git Along with a very rare guest vocalist, this time a duet with Chick Bullock. I much prefer the older Cab Calloway recordings before his music became more polished in the 1940s, though Calloway himself expressed a preference for the opposite. I've got several more to come from this series. Enjoy, and Happy New Year. +

*** I forgot to mention something I just discovered today while searching for the cover image. Note the "chronogical" at the top of the label. Apparently it was misspelled for years before Classics corrected the error - and it only took me 13 years to notice!
