CD Reviews

If you like New Orleans R&B this is the real deal
J. Mercik | Hartford, CT United States | 09/06/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a 1-CD sampler of songs taken from the box set entitled "Crescent City Soul: The Sound of New Orleans 1947-74." The full box set is rare and going for big buck$ these days, so this sampler is worth its weight in gold, as far as I'm concerned.

It starts off just where it should, with Fats Domino's "Fat Man Blues" and continues on through a myriad of well-known and lesser known artists' best tunes. Whether it Fats, or the original recording of "Bon Ton Roulet," or Dave Bartholomew singing "The Monkey Speaks His Mind" or the original version of "Fortune Teller" ..just too much fun.

The beauty of this collection is that original New Orleans R&B is a unique sound, different from Memphis, Detroit, etc., and this CD brings to life that difference in a way that makes you smile, just like one would smile when one sets foot in the Crescent City for the first time. God Bless New Orleans.
