Tune into an extended edition of "Dark Side of the Highway" this Sunday (Sep. 23) from 2-9 AM for a special memorial tribute to legendary New Oreleans singer/songwriter and pianist James "Sugar Boy" Crawford...
James "Sugar Boy" Crawford (October 12, 1934 - September 15, 2012)
James "Sugar Boy" Crawford (October 12, 1934 – September 15, 2012) was a New Orleans R&B musician. He was the author of "Jock-A-Mo" (1954), a hit that was later recreated as "Iko Iko", by The Dixie Cups and recorded by many artists including Dr. John, Belle Stars, The Grateful Dead and Cyndi Lauper.
Starting out on trombone, Crawford formed a band which local DJ Doctor Daddy-O named "The Chapaka Shawee" (Creole for "We Aren't Raccoons"), the title of an instrumental that they played. Signed on by Chess Records president Leonard Chess, the group was renamed 'Sugar Boy and his Cane Cutters'.
Although his song became a standard at the New Orleans Mardi Gras, Crawford himself disappeared from public view, and in a 2002 interview for Offbeat, told how his career came to an abrupt halt in 1963, after a severe beating which incapacitated him for two years, forcing him to leave the music industry. In 1969, he decided to limit his singing to in church only.
Crawford appeared on his grandson Davell Crawford's 1995 album, Let Them Talk. He made some stage appearances with Davell including one at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival (1996), and more recently at the seventh annual Ponderosa Stomp in April 2008.
Among the artists Crawford recorded with was Snooks Eaglin.
Some time before, I needed to buy a car for my firm but I didn't have enough cash and couldn't buy something. Thank God my brother proposed to try to take the personal loans "goodfinance-blog.com" at banks. Thence, I did that and was happy with my credit loan.

Hi Antonio,The monthly price gives you just the pamirry program features of the Analysis Generator it won't include the competitive analysis followups or the automatic report generation when people request it. You can buy those separately later when they are available and you are ready to utilize them. As for the mobile version, that's a completely different product. In terms of what it does and the impression it makes for your prospects, this is worth hundreds per month. It gives you the image of having other hired help in your company even if it's just you. So instead of hiring someone to do the analysis for you while you are away, the program does it for you automatically. What is that worth to you?So I think $47/m for that application is a very fair request for what it will be doing for you in return. Hope that makes sense.
