- A mainstay of the New Orleans music scene, Lee Dorsey’s funky and infectious sound was an essential party ingredient during the 60s and 70s. During this time he charted some ten singles, most of which were recorded under the aegis of producer/songwriter Allen Toussaint and often featured funk supremos The Meters.
Pressed on 180 gram vinyl, this collection includes a selection of Dorsey’s biggest US singles including ‘Ya Ya’ (R&B No.1), ‘Ride Your Pony’ (R&B No.7), ‘Get Out Of My Life, Woman’ (R&B No.5), ‘Working In The Coalmine’ (R&B No.5) and ‘Holy Cow’ (R&B No.10), alongside other classic tracks plus Toussaint’s signature song ‘Everything I Do Gonh Be Funky (From Now On)’.
“If a smile had a sound it would be the sound of Lee Dorsey’s voice. No wonder he inspired so many of my favourite songs” – Allen Toussaint.
