The Juke Joints

The 2015 ‘Heart on Fire’ CD (Continental Records) contains 10 infectious Juke Joints originals and the Dr. Ross classic  Cat’s Squirrel and the penned by Australian rockabilly singer/guitarist Louis King’s song  Funny Little Valentine, received the passionate, greasy Juke Joints treatment and seamlessly fit in the coherence of that album.
