The New Lee Dorsey - Lee Dorsey

The New Lee Dorsey
Lee Dorsey epitomized the loose, easygoing charm of New Orleans R&B perhaps more than any other artist of the '60s. Working with legendary Crescent City producer/writer Allen Toussaint, Dorsey typically offered good-time party tunes with a playful sense of humor and a loping, funky backbeat. Even if he's remembered chiefly for the signature hit ‘Working In A Coalmine', it was a remarkably consistent and winning combination for the vast majority of his recording career. Following our first time CD collection of his earlier Toussaint-produced sides, built around his Bell records album Ride Your Pony, we follow up with another built around it's follow-up - THE NEW LEE DORSEY - along with a slew of 45 side and rarities bringing us up to a mighty 23 tracks...backed by the legendary Meters, and packed with good humour and soul dancers; this is an amazing introduction to the work of one of the Crescent City's finest... ** Wonderfully re-mastered by the bipolar bears Norman Blake and Joe Foster... ** Sexy packaging by Mr. Andrew Morten esq for Pepperbox.... ** A must for all fans of the easy loping funky style of New Orleans soul…
