SNAX 624 CD

A deluxe, 50-track 2CD mediabook featuring the New Orleans legend’s solo recordings plus his greatest production hits for Lee Dorsey, The Meters, Ernie K-Doe and more.

Many of today’s music fans might only know the name of Allen Toussaint from his work with Elvis Costello in 2006 on the album River In Reverse but of course his career stretches back over 50 years and includes a multitude of hit records as a composer, arranger, producer and performer.

This collection covers 20 years of his remarkable career, beginning with his first appearances on record as a session pianist, his first solo recordings in 1958 under the name Al Tousan and ending in the '70s with his timeless songs and productions for artists like Lee Dorsey and The Meters. In between we’ll hear his original versions of tunes recorded by Al Hirt and Herb Alpert, together with songs he wrote and/or produced which later became famous when covered by The Rolling Stones, The Yardbirds, Herman’s Hermits, The Dave Clark Five, Otis Redding and Wilson Pickett.
