2 CDs / 30 Tracks – Includes Previously unreleased material. Renowned around his Crescent City home base as “the Tan Canary” for his extraordinary set of soulfully soaring pipes, veteran R&B vocalist Johnny Adams tackled an exceptionally wide variety of material for Rounder Records in his later years. Adams sang gospel professionally before crossing over to the secular world in 1959, scoring a number of hits produced and written by a young Dr. John. In the late ‘60s he moved to the SSS imprint racking up Top Ten Hits with “Reconsider Me” and “Release Me.” After an unsuccessful stint with Atlantic, Adams hooked up with New Orleans wunderkind Allen Toussaint and Senator Jones that resulted in two breathtakingly soulful (and out of print) albums and regionally released singles that compromise the bulk of this compilation.
