Classic Re-Issue Coming From Dirty Dozen

by | Oct 15, 2009

Twenty five years ago, Dirty Dozen Brass Band released its first album, My Feet Can’t Fail Me Now and New Orleans became that much funkier.

With classic cuts such as “Lil Liza Jane” and the stirring version of “St. James Infirmary,” in addition to rousing originals such as “Blackbird Special” and the title track, this album set the standard for what was to become a reinvigorated brass band scene in the Crescent City.

To celebrate the anniversary, DDBB has made the title track of its debut album available for free on its website. In addition, the group will re-release a re-mastered version of the currently out of print album and play the disc in its entirety at several shows this fall, according to Jambands and Jambase.

Here’s the full track list:

1. Blackbird Special
2. Do It Fluid
3. I Ate Up the Apple Tree
4. Bongo Beep
5. Blue Monk
6. Caravan
7. St James Infirmary
8. L’il Liza Jame
9. Mary Mary
10. My Feet Can’t Fail Me Now
