Editorial Reviews

Bobby Charles was a true original. A white Cajun kid who unaffectedly sang R&B. And a gifted songwriter who couldn't read or write music or even play an instrument. After a club date one night, he wrote See You Later, Alligator and a record store owner played it for Len Chess at Chess Records. Chess signed him thinking he was black. Although Bill Haley covered Alligator and scored a bigger hit with it, Alligator launched a long recording career for Bobby Charles that also included the original version of a song that became a big hit for Clarence Frogman Henry, Don't You Know I Love You (You Know I Love You), a song later featured in the hit Tom Hanks movie Forrest Gump.

For the first time, Bear Family has collected all of Bobby Charles's Chess recordings. Alongside his hits, there's one New Orleans classic after another (I'm A Fool To Care ...later a hit for Joe Barry, and On Bended Knee, to name just two!)

This set is a fitting tribute to one of the unsung heroes of New Orleans music. And speaking of that, Bobby Charles also wrote Fats Domino's classic Walkin' To New Orleans. Bobby Charles... gone but by no means forgotten.

Includes rare photos and notes by New Orleans music journalist Rick Coleman.
