Format: Audio CD
"Classic New Orleans Soul" is one entry in Capitol's "Crescent City Soul" series devoted to New Orleans R & B - other titles, with each disc offering 20 tracks, include "The Big Beat Of Dave Bartholemew" devoted to the legendary producer/songwriter/bandleader's most successful decade (1949 - 60) with hits by Chris Kenner, Smiley Lewis, Shirley and Lee, and others; "Let The Good Times Roll" a sampler of Crescent City classics released during 1949 - 66; the single-disc "Fats Domino's Jukebox", and a more comprehensive boxed set of Domino's work.
"Classic New Orleans Soul" is a fleet summary of hits and lesser known gems released on the Minit label from 1959 - 63, when a young Allen Toussaint wrote, produced, arranged, and played on most of this important and influential label's output. Beginning with Jesse Hill's 1959 classic, the two-part 'Ooh Poo Pah Doo' until Spring of 1963, when auteur Toussaint was drafted, an astonishing amount of quality r&b, soul, and slinky proto-funk was issued. The fact that the cover dates are slightly off is just one detail that gives this project a rushed, budget-line feel, especially when compared to the Capitol's long out of print 1994 double-cd set "The Minit Record Records Story" - that package told the story of Minit's two disparate eras, packing a generous 28 tracks on the first disc representing the Toussaint era, and 25 more covering the label when it was revived as an outlet for Liberty's black music releases from 1966 to 1970, with a smartly written and annotated 20 page booklet.

I bought this album on a whim. I only recognized a couple of the songs but within less than a week I knew all the words to all the songs. All the songs are catchy in the way that pop songs were meant to be. This type of music, this cajun-influenced R&B is catchy without being annoying like Doo Wop can be after listen number 30. I liken this album to early Otis songs like 'Shake' and 'Respect' or early Ray Charles songs like 'You Be My Baby'. This album is just plain fun. Neither too fast or slow and always a little off-beat (like 'Mother-in-Law' which likens the woman to satan and '39-21-46', come on, who really has these proportions?!). These were songs that were too black for white charts making them that much cooler now.

...when it comes to lavishing praise on this compilation commensurate with its excellence...Just suffice it to say that this is both R&B and pop done to the highest standard possible. Incredibly great songwriting, singing and production from the sui generis Allen Toussaint. You can truly see why he's known as a musician's musician and is one of the towering figures of N.O. music...I saw him at the Jazz Fest a coupla years ago, and even from what seemed like miles away, with the huge crowd, he was just tremendous, blowing away every other act I saw that day...

Now, after you pick up this stellar comp of Toussaint productions, be sure to go out and get the Allen Toussaint Collection, a comp of his own solo work. You'll be very happy.

I got this CD to relive some of the great local music of New Orleans. These songs hit the bullseye. Makin' me homesick.
