Ooh Poo Pah Do B/W I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man - Skip Easterling

Skip Easterling is the definitive example of authentic blue-eyed soul. He's a New Orleansian through and through and collaborated with many of the all time great funk n' soul producers ( Allen Toussaint, Eddie Bo, Huey "Piano" Smith, etc.).

"Ooh Poo Pah Do" is the flirty b-side to his equally flirty regional hit "I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man". Muddy Waters may have been the first to record the famous blues standard, but Skip was the first one to include funky flute and kickass brass. Not bad for a white boy, not bad at all. This seven inch single was released in 1970 and represents the final pressing for Instant Records. Enjoy!
