Walking to New Orleans (Jools Holland C4 1985 TV show)
This is a ripped version of the UK Channel 4 TV show from 1985.
A friend recently sent it to me in DVD format and I thought I would share it.
Many other people may remember this show and wish to see it again.
It was a tongue-in-cheek tribute to the roots of American music done by the great British musician and band leader, Jools Holland, in his youth.
Here's a link to a reference to it on the BFI's website...
I have searched high and low for this on commercial DVD or even VHS, but there seems to be no copies available to buy anywhere.
So here we have it.
There are lots of artists on the show...
- Sting sings in a London tunnel under the Thames
- Dr. John sings 'Such a Night'
- The Neville Brothers sing a couple of songs...
'Voodoo Lady'/'Why you want to hurt my heart' and 'Feeling Good'
- Good Rockin' Dopsie and The Cajun Twisters sing...
'I'm in the mood' and 'Joleene'
- Luther Kent and Trick Bag sing 'I'll know better next time'
- Lee Dorsey sings 'Working in a Coal Mine'
- The Gospel Soul Children sing 'Praise His Name'
- Johnnie Allan sings 'Promised Land'
- Allen Toussaint sings 'Thank You Lord'
- Jools sings 'Doctor Jazz'
And of course, not forgetting the excellent duo of Jools Holland and Fats Domino, which can be seen here...
if you don't want the whole show.
