Thread Name: Help: St. James Infirmary - by Rolling Stones?
Subject: RE: St. James infirmary
If you want to see a really cool mind-blower, see the old 30s Fleischer Studios cartoon that uses Calloway's version as a soundtrack. You would have thought the artists were on acid but acid hadn't been invented yet. These were the same guys that did Betty Boop and if you're familiar with Betty Boop cartoons then you can guess how strange their St. James Infirmary is. In fact, it may have been part of a Betty Boop--I forget.
