Well I agree with better stuff from that period from Armstrong but this vocal take has stood the test of time for better or worse coming from this great jazz musician of his time. See if that horrid offering of it from KG over top has the same shelf life down the road.

Anyway read your own earlier post on Armstrong in reference to JUST THAT Jay if your are trying the old typical troll behavior thing yet again into this current discussion.

The more things change the more they stay the same.....i'm out.
