That tune is on Volume 6: Mardi Gras Time with The Dukes of Dixieland
AFLP-1862 and AFSD-5862 released in 1958.  I'll have my cousin check the
liner notes to see if they mention the importance of the tune at Mardi Gras.
BTW, if you all get a chance check out the new site look and feel at
http://www.TheDukesofDixieland.com .  I've made a lot of improvements
especially in the discography by converting it to an online database
application.  I'm still working on a few items, namely the site search,
feedback form, and message board.  Hopefully these items will be fixed on

Let me know what you think,
Mike Marois

How important, why, and most crucially, in what way, is the place of
 "If ever I cease to love" in the NO Mardi Gras tradition?

I'm considering the tune for "DixFBv2" and want to add a note explaining
why it's there. It's on a "Dukes of Dixieland" Audio Fidelity album, one of
those Mardi Gras compilations has it, and someone sent me music for re a
gig it 20 years ago.
