tip of the hat to late Canadian rocker Jerry Doucette

Until earlier this evening, I don't think I'd ever become familiar w/ the late Jerry Doucette --- and I'm most certainly of his generation.
Was streaming a 2015 movie "The Steps" when one of the soundtrack songs ("Mama Let Him Play") flat out grabbed me.

I did a search and found it was written and performed by Canadian Jerry Doucette and his band Doucette. Seems it was a hit on Canadian charts about 1977. No sooner than I "discover" a great tune, I learned Jerry Doucette passed away earlier this year April 2022 --- dang it! May our Lord always Bless and Keep Jerry +

Darn, I remember listening to that song a ways back! Sorry to hear about his passing. I'm going to listen to it right now.

Still gets lots of air time at least on Canadian stations. Even on Sirius XM. My dad wasnt a rock guy (cbc talk radio only or Johnny Cash 8 track on road trips), but when that song came out, he cranked it.
