 Thanks for the details Mickey. The A-side is listed elsewhere as No Good Woman, a slow 13-bar ballad, but it's You Ain't Nothin' But Fine which carries this record and ought to be the top side. Can't remember if I had heard this on the radio and went looking, or if it was a lucky find, but it's good dancing stuff in the zydeco style, with all those odd 5-beat bars thrown in for the chorus

 Love that '50s and '60s Louisiana sound. Jin was a subsidiary of Floyd Soileau's Swallow label in Ville Platte. Sidney also recorded as Count Rockin' Sidney and wore a turban. He made a lot of money late in life after writing that novelty song "My Toot Toot" and recording the first version. The Fabulous Thunderbirds did a knock-out version of "You Ain't Nothin' But Fine" on their first album. Blues Records lists this Jin session as Sidney Semien (vo, g), George Lewis (hca), Sherman Thomas (g), Francis Semien (b), Roger Semien (d).
