Baboon Boogie !

Jimmy Murphy is one of the more enigmatic figures to come out of the country/rockabilly scene of the early to mid-1950s.
A virtuoso guitar player and a gifted and inspired songwriter, he always defied categorization.
His influences ranged from Jimmie Rodgers, to rockabilly, to honky tonk and bluegrass !
Murphy passed away in 1981.

Someone should do a "16 tons" compilations disc. So many good versions of that tune.
