|Price started mixing the swing sound he'd worked with overseas into the hard blues he'd grown up hearing in New Orleans.|
His first attempt at this fusion resulted in "Stagger Lee", an updated version of an old blues about a man who murders his friend in a barroom. Built with swinging horns, peppy 'pop' background vocals and shuddering piano, the song titillated audiences around the world with its 'low' subject matter.
