This book is a fitting tribute to New Orleans musician Ernie K-Doe. The Emperor's soul shines through in the many color plates and historic black and white photos. Author and local historian Ben Sandmel lives in the New Orleans metro area and is a musician, writer, and folklorian.
Here at Steamboats.com, we know Ben Sandmel best as a former employee of the Delta Queen Steamboat. He posted his stories at the site years ago, see Ben Sandmel's Delta Queen Stories - click here.
