Product Notes

Double vinyl LP pressing. 2013 release, the third installment in Soul Jazz Records' most successful series to date. Subtitled Two-Way-Pocky-Way, Gumbo Ya Ya And the Mardi Gras Mambo, this collection features more classic New Orleans Funk in all it's forms. The syncopated percussion beat of the second line jazz parade bands, the secret language and dances of the Mardi Gras Indians, the mambo and Latin rhythms of Professor Longhair and the city's many piano players help make New Orleans a unique musical melting pot. A seemingly endless line of amazing singers - Lee Dorsey, Betty Harris, Willie West, Eldridge Holmes - released a constant stream of stunning 45s, backed by the super-funk Meters and produced by Allen Toussaint. The multi-talented Eddie Bo, similarly wrote and produced for an elite set of artists including the Explosions, Chuck Carbo and others. But limited local record distribution meant that most of these artists remained unknown outside of the city borders and as a consequence many of these records are serious collectors items today.
