Waterloo Records

These classic early New Orleans' R&B Instro's, featuring ten of the Crescent City's most celebrated, influential artists, present an eclectic selection of hits, flips, misses and rarities. They range from household names like pianist Fats Domino to sidemen/sessionmen like bassist Lloyd Lambert. Trumpeter/bandleader/arranger/songwriter Dave Bartholomew also appears here incognito, as The Royal Kings. In the brass section we have tenor saxophonist Lee 'Walkin' With Mr Lee' Allen and saxophonist/arranger/producer Alvin "Red" Tyler, the latter another session giant. As well as Fats, we feature pianists Professor Longhair and pianist/bandleader Paul Gayten, whose band play on most of these sides. Guitarist/arranger/bandleader Edgar Blanchard was arguably N'Awlins' finest axeman, although Roy Montrell, guitarist in Fats Domino's band, ran him close. Finally, the multi-instrumental pianist/guitarist/bassist/producer/arranger genius of Mac Rebennack features as himself, and in disguise, as "Gene & Al's Spacemen".
