Description

By the end of 1967, the music business in the Crescent City was in a bad way, and after Cosimo Matassa’s downfall, recording activity in the city fell off a cliff. As in 1966, over 400 Crescent City recorded soul songs were issued in 1967. This number dropped to less than 100 in 1968. This was truly the end of an era.

Like its predecessor album which covered 1966, this LP brings together the best soul tracks recorded in New Orleans in 1967. At this time southern soul was in the ascendant but as usual the musical background of the Crescent City – jazz, R & B, the Caribbean – ensured that music recorded there always had a rhythmic twist and arrangements all of their own. New Orleans – the joker in the soul pack for sure. No national hits here, just the sound of the streets. The heartbeat of the city.
