Chuck Carbo, "The Voice of New Orleans," has justly enjoyed a long and successful career. His vocal group, the Spiders, charted two simultaneous hits in the Billboard R&B Top Ten in 1954, while in recent years his recordings of "Second Line on Monday" and "Meet Me With Your Black Drawers On" have become Carnival-time favorites. With arrangements by Edward Frank and support from an all-star Crescent City band, including trumpet phenomenon Christian Patrick and young keyboard wizard Davell Crawford, here is pure New Orleans rhythm and blues with a touch of jazz and a strong dose of Creole soul. Includes the new Carnival anthem, "Hey, Mardi Gras! (Here I Am)" and a brand new song from Dan Penn and Charlie Taylor, "I'd Rather Beg." Produced by Scott Billington and Edward Frank.
