Song Of The Day - "Don't You Just Know It" by Huey 'Piano' Smith & the Clowns

by Eric Berman

In a city known for great composer-pianists like Professor Longhair, Fats Domino and Dr. John, Huey Piano Smith carved out his niche with a handful of jovial self-penned hits including "Rockin' Pneumonia & The Boogie Woogie Flu," "High Blood Pressure," "Little Liza Jane," "Sea Cruise" and this infectious call-and-response gem from 1958. Little known fact: White singer, Frankie Ford, had the hit with "Sea Cruise" after Ace Records stripped Smith's vocals off of his backing track.
