Covers: Marie, Marie

Dave Alvin wrote “Marie, Marie” when he was in the Blasters.  They released a couple of versions (1980 and 1981).  It’s a great example of the Blasters 1950’s revival style.  It was covered by Buckwheat Zydeco in 1987 and became popular among zydeco and Cajun bands in Louisiana.

Live version from 2017
