Trad Jazz and Drugs???
What would ever give them that idea?
Songs about booze, beer, wine and maybe a little pot, - no problem.
"Hard" drugs ? I can think of only a few directly related songs about
opium (Minnie the Moocher, Jerry the Junker, Smokey Joe, etc.) and
Anybody else remember any drug songs from the '20s and '30s? (I see a
radio special coming up ;-)
