This CD restores to catalog Toussaint's second album - titled originally Toussaint, then renamed From A Whisper To A Scream - augmented with the A- and B-sides of three Bell 45s from 1968 and 1969. Five of these have never been reissued in 35+ years. Originally released in 1970, New Orleans' eminent musical genius's solo LP was largely overlooked at the time but is nowadays considered to be a real masterpiece. A showcase for both Toussaint's widely admired piano playing and his unique bluesy voice, the contains the original versions of several of his best known songs, for himself and for other notables such as Lee Dorsey, Bonnie Raitt, Robert Palmer and Esther Phillips. Good though these are, Toussaint's recordings are the definitive versions.
