Here at Room 220, we’re still stuck in a state of awe over Ben Sandmel’s fantastic biography of Ernie K-Doe, published recently by the Historic New Orleans Collection. We’ve recently posted a whole slew of archival photos of the book along with Wesley Stokes’ review of it.

Is that Quintron in the pool, and Miss Pussycat in the big shades? Sure looks like it.
