Description

In the curiously titled "Zolo Go", Lightnin' made it clear that he was aware of the music of the growing Louisiana Creole population in Houston's Fifth Ward. The word zologo was apparently Bill Quinn's misunderstanding of Lightnin's pronunciation of the word Zydeco, because in his introduction, Lightnin' explained "Let's zydeco a little while for you folks...You know young and old likes that" Zolo Go is the only recording in which Lightnin' mimicked the sound of the accordion, as he accompanied himself on an electric Hammond organ.
