The Hot Club Of Hulaville were doing a concert in Hawaii and I was recording them.
Sonny/Clarence was playing guitar and he sang this song and the audience went nuts.
I did too. I loved it. I love the line, "It only happens, when I'm nappin'.
So, like a good song thief, I looked up the different versions and listened to them and started working on my own version of it.
About a year later, I came into the studio to do a few jazz songs with the guys in the Hot Club of Hulaville backing me up, and we recorded this song too.
I told Sonny that I liked his version but wanted to make mine better than his. He gave me a good, weird look, smiled and played a great guitar track that set the whole thing up. David laid down a rock solid bass part and Duane did his usual magic on the violin.
I told Pierre, the engineer, that I would lay down a rough vocal track. He said, in his thick French accent, you will not lay down a rough track you will lay down a master track.
Yes sir, and I did. I thought I was Sinatra (yes, Frank not Wally.)
We cut it a few times and knew that we had captured it. It felt great. Pierre then played a terrific piano track to fill it out. Mike Couchois came in and played the drums again and put his special feel on it.
When my mom heard it, she said I love it play it again. I said no ma, I cant play this for you. (I dont think she really listened to the lyrics.)
