Another wild ride on Backbeat this week as we start out with a blues song that was also a hit in Cajun, Reggae and Country versions, the Ink Spots sing the praises of coffee and we hear a Kenyan group who obviously loved the Ink Spots. We'll even throw in a Black string band from the 1930s, some lovely country harmony from the Miller Sisters (pictured), a Beatles instrumental and a Bill Monroe classic just for fun.
