Hi Charlie: can't help with the tune, but agree about the Original Indiana 
Five. We recorded their arrangement of "Mean, Mean Mama" for Stomp Off a few 
years back, learned it off an old 78 record. Now Jazz Oracle have issued 
their entire output on four CD's in perfect sound quality, so OIF lovers can 
overdose on their music!
