Among the Greatest ... Ever

"This reissue captures Allen Toussaint's mid-period solo recordings including several must-have tracks such as "Workin' in a Coal Mine," "Sweet Touch of Love," "Everything I Do Gonna Be Funky" and the title track. For the most part, Toussaint wrote these tunes for other artists, notably Lee Dorsey whose takes are the definitive vocal recordings. But there's something magical about Toussaint's vocal delivery. It's so smooth and mellow, yet intense, soulful and funky. There's nothing quite like hearing the composer sing his own songs. Toussaint's later solo recording are captured in the Complete Warner Bros. Recordings set, which is also very much worth getting."
Genius Can Be So Overused

"Toussaint's best. Listen to the record that made Lowell George want to make 'Dixie Chicken'. From the Toussaint horns to the backup singing of Merry Clayton and Venetta Fields, this album is an incredible piece of writing, performing, and singing. Toussaint's piano playing is really top notch on the instrumental tracks as well. I've waited more than a year for Amazon to get this and now it's here. I got mine. Get yours."
