27 May 2015, No. 97, Eddie Bo, ‘Hook and Sling Part II’

“Sling your hook” is an idiom, probably nautical in origin, that directs one to go away and stop bothering whomever one is bothering. In the funky exhortations of Eddie Bo, though, it’s a 1969 dance that maybe swept New Orleans. Hook it, sling it, No. 97 is “Hook and Sling Pt. II” from Eddie Bo.
