All the best early work of the New Orleans legend Eddie Bo – his first nine singles for the Ric label, both a and b-sides – along with originally unissued tracks as well! The work here spans a short time, but really shows an evolution in Eddie's style – from an initial start as a singer with a groove that was right up there with Crescent City bests of the R&B years, to a style that begins to have some of the funk and soul touches that Bo would explore more in the 60s! As usual with Ace, the presentation of the material is wonderful – very rich notes, and full details on the origin of all the tracks, even the unissued ones, which only appeared as 7" singles on a Record Store Day
box a few years ago. Tracks include "Bless You Darling", "Roamin Titis", "Nothing Without You", "I'll Do Anything For You", "Check Mr Popeye", "Baby I'm Wise", "Hey There Baby", "Warm Daddy", "Dinky Doo", "It Must Be Love", and "Ain't It The Truth Now".
