Elvis Costello & Allen Toussaint - Who's Gonna Help Brother Get Further?

In 2006 Elvis Costello and New Orleans legend Allen Toussaint released a fabulous collaborative record called The River In Reverse, partly inspired by the consequences of Hurricane Katrina on the Crescent City, thus the title. They wrote a few new tunes, but mostly revisited old Toussaint songs, such as this wonderful version of "Who's Gonna Help Brother Get Further?", a song Lee Dorsey made famous in 1970. It's a really great version, and the horn section is the best of all here. Unfortunately the video is cut short towards the end, but if you haven't heard it before it should suffice. You want more, buy the album.

Watch and listen
