Here’s what Tony has to say about it:
“There was a saloon on North Avenue and Sedgewick some years ago called O’Rourkes–it was legendary for being a hang -out for Actors, Writers, Newspaper folks and Artists. It had one of the best Juke-Boxes one can imagine–everything from Billie Holiday to Louis Armstrong to Johnny Hartmann. There was one Lovely and elegiac moody jazz song called “Yellow Days” by Earl “Fatha” Hines. When I was still drinking pints of Bass Ale I would give this song a quarter every time I went in there…It was an ebulliently sad song if that makes any sense–one of those songs that smiles to keep from crying…This is kind of what Western Avenue feels like to me–harsh, comical, urgent and oddly defeated; but still slugging…it is that kind of song and that kind of place…”
