From New Orleans in the east to Lake Charles
in the west, Rhythm'n'Blues not only
entertained the black population of South
Louisiana filling the juke joints along Route 90,
it also inspired a whole generation of young
white performers influencing their music into
forming what would become swamp pop - a
sound which features here in embryonic form.
We return to the bayou for a sixth helping of
downhome R&B, sourced from the finest indie
labels found in Louisiana and East Texas.
Lesser-heard gems and rare alternate versions
rub shoulders with previously unreleased
recordings by genre notables Cookie & the
Cupcakes, Van Preston and Elizabeth, to name
but three.
Featured labels include Ron, Feature, Excello,
Goldband, Hollywood, Rocko and Flip, while
just under half of the 28 tracks are previously
unreleased. Compiler Ian Saddler is our tour
guide as we continue to journey through
Southern R&B's rarest and best.
