Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys also recorded a version during the group's heyday with Tommy Duncan. Louis Prima also recorded the song on his 1957 album The Wildest! as did Dr. John on his 1992 album Goin' Back to New Orleans. Bob Wills' official[clarification needed]version contains slightly different lyrics than those heard on Bob Wills' Anthology. Instead of Basin Street being the place where the "dark and light folks" meet, as sung on the recording, the printed lyrics state that Basin Street is the place where the "young and old folks" meet.
In his live recording made at the Monterey Jazz festival in 1963, Jack Teagarden claims that the words we usually associate with the song were written by Teagarden and his fellow trombonist Glenn Miller when they were asked to arrange the song for an early Ben Pollack recording. Neither name appears on the song credits.
When he was with Dick Stabile and his orchestra, Dean Martin recorded a version of this classic Jazz standard. Although Martin himself would later go to record more New Orleans themed songs.
