Review

Review Text 25 New Orleans R&B/rock/blues sides from the 1950s, taken from the vaults of Specialty, Ebb, and Regal Records. There aren't any big hits here (though some did well on the R&B charts), and despite the presence of names like Lloyd Price, Professor Longhair, Guitar Slim, Clifton Chenier, and Larry Williams, there are several other vintage Crescent City R&B collections that you should pick up before getting to this one. It's sort of generic, if on the whole quite acceptable. Its appeal will primarily lie in the R&B collector crowd, due to obscure tracks by the above-mentioned names (including Price's follow-up singles to his famous "Lawdy Miss Clawdy") and unknowns like Willie Johnson, Roy Montrell, and Ernest Kador (who became Ernie K-Doe of "Mother-In-Law" fame). There are also curious demos of "Good Golly Miss Molly" (by Bumps Blackwell) and "All Around the World" (Li'l Millet), which are much more renowned via the versions cut by Little Richard. ~ Richie Unterberger
