The definitive Preservation Hall set.
on October 5, 2012
I have a few of the PHJB's releases but this is easily the most definitive and also boasts great sound. Ben Jaffe, the current Creative Director cherry picks 58 tracks of their best recorded work over the past 50 years. If you have even a passing interest in New Orleans traditional music, you will find much to enjoy. If your interests run deeper, you may never take this out of rotation. When in New Orleans, do not pass up a visit to the Hall for one of their sets, it really lets you know, you could be nowhere else in the world, the essence of that city.
