A quick (I hope) question: My memory for names of things is not as good as it used to be, and I'm trying to remember the title of the original tune which Country Joe used for his "Feel Like I'm Fixin' To Die Rag". The famous, "And it's one, two, three, what are..." is the chorus of the original tune, and the original also has a verse.

It's a mainstream jazz standard with, if I remember, a distinctly New Orleans feel - what Jelly Roll Morton called that "Spanish Tinge".

Any help greatly appreciated - I can recall the jazz tune perfectly but I'm damned if I can remember the name!

Good try, Leadfingers (and thanks) but - nope, that's not what the one. :-) When the right title's quoted, I'll know it instantly! (Sigh - the burden of ageing...)

I have heard that an alternate title is Muscat Ramble, where "Muscat" possibly refers to muscatel, or Muscat Grapes.

Why don't we just settle for MUDCAT Ramble? Then we can have a secret theme tune to whistle and identify ourselves.
