Lee Dorsey: Working in the Coalmine


This was written by American record producer Allen Toussaint (1938-2015), though he had never been anywhere near a coalmine. It was recorded by Lee Dorsey in New Orleans in 1966 and reached No 8 in both Britain and the US.

The mother-daughter duo The Judds came up with a very different version for their 1985 album Rockin’ With The Rhythm.
