'Tennessee' Ernie Ford's 16 Tons of Boogie

Three days of boogie (woogie) are ahead of you ; well kind of....

Note : full screen window gives you the best view of the comments !

'Clickable' links are for you downloaders soooo convienent but the disadvantage is they don't seem to 'last' long.
The Blogger gets a lot of comments 'please re-up'...... Other, more appropriate/interesting comments, they sadly don't get... :(
So you will have to do a little work to get the link.
This seems, in my opinion, the best deal between 'protecting' my links and the least effort for you.

Link :
Of course you understand to replace in r#pidsh#re twice the # in an a otherwise you don't have a 'valid' link !!
Paste this valid link in your browser-url and hit RETURN. You can also copy/paste the link into your 'downloadmanager'.

Pass to extract the file : 081112
The file is a small 40MB, 'cause the songs are only in very low bitrate.
Please donnut give a nasty comment about that : check 'My opinion about bitrates' on 2008_jan_25.

The next depends, amongst other things, on your security options in your browser and by so the ability to copy/paste the link.
When you see this in Google or Yahoo cache or by my Blog's search function read first the RED instructions at the top left of my Blog !
Direct link (after that go to the plain comment of this 2008_november article !) : JeansMusicBlog
Also possible : just click the 'post a comment' section here and you are able to copy/paste !

....And while you are there you might as well give a comment yourself....
To quote the Legend that is Doodles Weaver

" You load sixteen tons
What do you get?


Thanks, Muchly.

Wasn't Doodle Weaver one of the singers/vocals of Spike Jones Band ?
Doodles Weaver was with Spike Jones. He was most famous for the horse race in the William Tell Overture...and the legendary Feetlebaum.

He recorded an album in the 60's & 70's. He did a version of ELENOR RIGBY that is available out and about on the Internet...the 16 Tons line is from that.

He also appeared frequently on the 60's version of DRAGNET.
