This 180g vinyl LP features the New Orleans legend's solo recordings plus
several of his biggest hit productions for Ernie K-Doe, Lee Dorsey, the Meters
This collection covers 20 years of his remarkable career, beginning with his
first appearances on record as a session pianist, his first solo recordings in
1958 under the name Al Tousan and ending in the '70s with his timeless songs and
productions for artists like Lee Dorsey and The Meters. In between you'll hear
his original versions of tunes recorded by Al Hirt and Herb Alpert, together
with songs he wrote and/or produced which later became famous when covered by
The Rolling Stones, The Yardbirds, Herman’s Hermits, The Dave Clark Five, Otis
Redding and Wilson Pickett.
