The rhumba-style track "Tipitina" was first released as a single in 1953 and was re-released on Professor Longhair's classic 1972 album New Orleans Piano. The song provided the name for an iconic New Orleans nightclub and music venue when Tipitina's opened in 1977, and the album was named one of Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of all time. "Tipitina" has become a quintessential New Orleans standard and has been covered by many artists, including fellow New Orleanian Dr. John. It was added to the National Recording Registry in 2011.
