Often referred to as Let The Good Times Roll (or LTGTR) on set lists and tape labels but the correct title of this Sam Cooke song is Good Times.

Not the same song as Brent Mydland's Never Trust A Woman which is sometimes referred to as Good Time Blues. Neither is it the same song as the Shirley and Lee song Let The Good Times Roll, though the Sam Cooke song probably owes a debt to the Shirley and Lee song.
