Maria's magical tribute to New Orleans. Maria Muldaur?s musical style defies definition. Though she had a Top 10 Pop single with "Midnight At The Oasis," she?s always favored roots music like folk, country and the blues. In 1992, she recorded an album that paid tribute to the rich musical traditions of New Orleans. With help from friends such as Aaron Neville and Dr. John, she created one of the most compelling albums of her career, Louisiana Love Call, which Rolling Stone called a "fervent exercise in Crescent City soul" in its 4-star review.

Don't just think of her hit, "Midnight at the Oasis" when you think of Maria Muldaur. She really shines when singing blues. This CD is considered her best album, featuring New Orleans blues and GREAT support musicians. Worth the price of the CD just to hear "Don't you feel my leg," with Dr. John on the piano and vocals.

Must for Muldaur fans

"Blues and New Orleans-style jazz just don't get much better than this. In Louisiana Love Call, Maria Muldaur pays homage to the rhythms and sounds that have made New Orleans one of the world's great centers of music. And what a tribute it is! Maria's voice, which has only improved with age, makes this album shine.This CD is currently out of print because Black Top Records has gone out of business. This is unfortunate, because there isn't a single bad track on the album. Fortunately, you can still buy it used, though it is getting hard to come by. Maybe one of the major labels will pick up the rights to Louisiana Love Call and reissue it. One can only hope so - Maria Muldaur is one of the finest jazz and blues singers of our age, and this is one of her best albums. Enjoy!"
Excellent collection of Maria Muldaur....

"I had always put Maria's music right up there with the best, I'd
have to compare her to Bonnie Raitt as they both, in their early
years helped bring back a rootsy/folk/country blues that most
white teens and younger adults never got the chance to hear. While Bonnie has gone on to more rock/blues/pop success's(finally)and
Maria has kept to a different vision,(although Maria and Bonnie
have gone on to sing together, she just loves to tackle
styles (less commercial) and she does it better than anyone.
I got to see her several years back in a small jazz club in
Cambridge, Ma. and she IS one great entertainer. LLS is a great
CD from start to finish, I'd wished triple A radio had taken
this one in, just a stunner and one of the best in her long
