From the Royal Street Playlist: Big Al Carson

Okay, and there’s still time to enter the contests for the week–links below!

I listened to lots of Hurricane Katrina-related music while writing Royal Street–which meant keeping myself weepy a lot of the time. But sometimes DJ and I needed to kick back. So today I bring to you a fun song from the playlist: New Orleans’ own Big Al Carson, singing the classic “Take Your Drunken A** Home.” C’mon, how can you listen to this and not laugh? I almost fell over when I found it on YouTube. It’s a favorite on the jukebox at the Green Gator, a bar that figures prominently in Royal Street. Take it, Big Al!
