8 Louis Jordan - Lemonade - Decca 27324

WINNER : MONDY

SPONTANEOUS LUNACY VERDICT 7/10
Alma covers Margie Day & The Griffin Brothers original. I rate both as
"7" but with Margie scoring a high one and Alma a low

Believe it or not I think the Van Walls version of "Tee-Nah-Nah," with
Brownie McGhee on vocals, is equal to or better than Smiley's original.
