Al “Carnival Time” Johnson Updates Hit for Super Bowl XLVII

It’s Super Bowl time, y’all, and in honor of the country’s largest sporting event, Rabadash Records and New Orleans’ own Al “Carnival Time” Johnson have released a new recording that updates the singer’s beloved Mardi Gras classic.

It's Super Bowl Time! (Carnival, too)

Referencing Johnson’s 1959 hit, “It’s Super Bowl Time” was inspired by the coincidence of Carnival season with Super Bowl XLVII, which this year will take place at the Mercedes Benz Superdome.

As a lifelong performer (as well as at 2012 OffBeat Best of the Beat Lifetime Achievement award winner), Al “Carnival Time” Johnson will release his first full-length LP/CD with Rabadash Records on March 15.
