Original drunken post (26th December 2011) here:

Having restored The Moonglows to the blog, it seemed fitting to resurrect the Chess Doo-Wop collection. The original post is a fine demonstration of the art of music blogging while lying semi-comatose on the deck. Note that Dean Martin once said, "You're not drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on."

The Moonlighters were really The Moonglows going under another name. And The Ravens make an over-the-top appearance after their turn on the recently re-upped "Whoppers!" Jubilee compilation. And that's Gene Ammons on sax on track 1 "The White Cliffs Of Dover", which should attract the attention of the tenor sax crowd. Now where's the booze?
