"If you do not know anything about the music of New Orleans, this is the album that will offer you an introduction to the wide variety of sounds that New Orleans has to offer. The CD will make even a classical music lover happy.
1. Mardi Gras in New Orleans [Live] - The Dirty Dozen Brass Band
A great beginnning.
2. New Rules - Irma Thomas
Irma is amazing.
3. She Said the Same Things to Me - Johnny Adams
Johnny Adams is a miracle. Listening to Adams for the first
time was like listening to Barbra Streisand the first time.
4. We Don't See Eye to Eye - Johnny Adams
Adams make you realize what real singing is. All other
male singers will fade into the background.
5. Wondering - Phillip Walker
Phillip's singing is full of emotion and intimacy.
6. Song for Reneé (Gate's Tune) - Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown
Gatemouth is remarkable; the song is irresistable.
7. It's You I Love - Beausoleil
And I love Beausoleil.
8. Louisiana Blues - Jo-El Sonnier
9. Bachelor's Life - D.L. Menard
10. Don't You Know I Love You - Marcia Ball
I had never heard Ball sing before - truly fine. Her energy
level makes the songs stand out.
11. Think It over One More Time - Buckwheat Zydeco
This song has a great driving rhythm.
12. Steppin' up in Class - Lonesome Sundown
13. No Relation - Alvin "Red" Tyler
14. One for the Highway - James Booker
15. You Got Me Worried - Walter Washington
16. Gonna Cry 'Til My Tears Run Dry - Irma Thomas
Irma is haunting on this one.
17. Flintstones Meets the President (Meets the Dirty Dozen) [Live] - The Dirty Dozen Brass Band
18. When the Saints Go Marching In - Tuts Washington"
