I’m somewhat embarrassed to admit that until last night I didn’t know that “A Certain Girl” was an Ernie K-Doe tune. I only knew the song from the Warren Zevon cover. Thanks to the killer Asheville band Pleasure Chest for educating my ass.
Here’s a snippet of Pleasure Chest’s cover and the original below that.
Your turn, Ernie.
PS. I just got reeducated by my friend Jake. Allen Toussaint wrote the song, not Ernie K-Doe.
BTW, here’s a photo of Jake and Allen himself.
