If you recognize the name Tipitina, its a song from Professor Longhair’s Rock ‘n Roll Gumbo, extolling a New Orleans Club. Several well kown New Orlean artists have recorded  albums at club Tipitina’s, including Dr. John (Right Place, Right Time), Neville Brothers (Live at Tipitina’s 1982), and Tuts Washington (Live at Tipitina’s ’78).
