CD Reviews

From the laboratory of Allen Toussaint
Nicolas S. Martin | Indianapolis, IN United States | 12/05/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This recording has very little in common with the rest of Richard Newell's output, and for good reason. It was produced by Allen Toussaint at his creative apex, and is saturated with his New Orleans funk imprint. Blues traditionalists who enjoy the other Newell albums may not like this one as well, but to those who enjoy the Toussaint-style musical gumbo this offers a gem. It is excellent bluesy R&B. If it is your cup of tea you will want to investigate three other blue-eyed Toussaint productions from the same period: two albums whose titles are the names of the artists, "Browning Bryant" and "Jess Roden," and Frankie Miller's "High Life." Of course, Robert Palmer's first album, "Sneaking Sally Through the Alley," was recorded at Toussaint's studio with the Meters backing, and though not as fully Toussaintized, it is a fine album."

"I first came upon this album in 1975, and had it on 8-track tape. When 8-tracks fell out of favor I sold it, not knowing that it was out of print. It took me over 20 years to find it again on vinyl, at a great little used record store in Montreal, Canada. I was thrilled to have it again. This album is GREAT!!! It may remind you of the funky/boogie sound of Dr. John's "Desitively Bonaroo." This is a must have for all the former night trippers. I feel that it is one of King Biscuit Boy's best albums. Enjoy! Now that it is available in CD format I think that I am in Heaven...Love It!"
Excellent Artist!

"I still smile when I lsten to this album, even tho it's "The Blues". This is one of those albums that doesn't have one single "Throw away" song. Each one is a peach...bite in and enjoy!!!!!!!!"
