I looked over Jordan, and what did I see,
Come for to carry me home?
Oh! an Eldorado, coming after me,
Coming for to carry me home.

Released Jan 30 1967 (rereleased in 1996), this Dizzy Gilespie disc is not considered his best, however, In, Uh, MHO it is a valuable excercise in listening. This is a master puttin it down and out as he slides down into his older age.
The title track alone is worth the cost of admission.
