28 killer Rhythm and Blues songs from Louisiana and New Orleans
Unquestionably the aural feeling of this album is varied, with a dynamic and eclectic assortment of recordings. The titles are not used in chronological order they are used to fit with the albums direction and add a variety of sound. Most importantly due to the time frame of the recordings the sound and style for some artists may have changed. As always, the sequence of artists and styles sit comfortably side by side and this album focuses on Rhythm & Blues, Rock 'n' Roll, and up-tempo Blues music.
The mouthwatering array of Rhythm & Blues talent includes; Eddie Bo, Smiley Lewis, Little Eddie who has a name change to Eddie Lang and the exceptional Earl King who has Fats on piano, but who is Fats? The stalwarts are; Paul Gayten and His Orchestra, Champion Jack Dupree, Roy Brown, Frankie Lee Sims, Jesse Thomas, Rudy Green, and Classie Ballou and a man who was integral in the New Orleans music scene Roy Byrd aka Professor Longhair. With a different musical approach, you will hear, Linda Hopkins, Oscar McLollie and His Honeyjumpers and Big Boy Myles with Mac Rebennack Orchestra together with Bluesmen supreme Slim Harpo and Buddy Guy to deepen the aural feel of the album.
The Rock 'n' Roll hitmakers featured are; Fats Domino, Larry Williams, Clarence (Frogman) Henry, Richard Berry and The Lockettes, and Doo Wop rocker Donnie Elbert who add extra dynamism to the sound. The album like its predecessors could also be referred to as a self-composed album for most of the songs that came from the artist's pen. The album is great to play at home and perfect for Dee Jays who will find good dance-floor filling songs.
As with every album, there is more music to hear and enjoy and the vibrant music has a pleasing up-tempo feel throughout. Our albums have; stunning design, sleeve notes, twenty-eight songs, mastered for the best possible sound.
