A compilation of tremendous New Orleans R&B and soul recordings in the post-Fats Domino era by Cosimo Code website founders: author John Broven, Red "Soul Detective" Kelly and John "Sir Shambling" Ridley. The newly remastered pivotal New Orleans hits by Jessie Hill, Lee Dorsey, Robert Parker and Aaron Neville are joined by influential local recordings by Earl King, Reggie Hall, Danny White, Oliver Morgan, Willie Tee and Johnny Adams. The Eddie Bo and Inez Cheatham track is a big funk anthem. Among the lesser-known recordings are those by the Party Boys, Joe Haywood, Dave Bartholomew (with a hot remake of his favourite, 'The Monkey') and Ronnie Barron (whose 'Did She Mention My Name' is written and produced by Mac "Dr John" Rebennack). Features stellar producers Allen Toussaint, Harold Battiste, Dave Bartholomew and notably Wardell Quezergue, with outstanding session men including Nat Perilliat and Red Tyler (saxes), George Davis (guitar) and Smokey Johnson (drums). 18 tracks new to Ace CD. Notes by John Broven.
