"Thank the Lord" is a song I heard on a box set by the Orioles that Bear Family put out about ten years ago that just amazed me -had all kinds of great stuff on it, esp. great group singing and swinging bands (incredibly, with constantly changing personnel in the back-up bands, but always playing with this same great feel -don't know how they did it!) I found about six songs I wanted to work up... the Casuals do one, called "Cigareeto", which we love, and hopefully the CTP will do a few more over the next year. This is the one we worked up last week on its maiden voyage, and we sure had a ball doing it.

It's funny, because I've always loved black gospel music, which the Orioles' version has shades of; though it's really much closer to fifties pop. It's a little ironic, though, what with me being such a heathen (actually, technically I'm sort of an extreme agnostic, in that I'm sure I'm not privy to any inside info about God, and I'm sure no one else is, either.) But what the hell, that sure is some good music they got there, and I'm sure thankful for that..
