Raw nuggets from the Louisiana scene during the early years of rock and soul – late 50s/
early 60s numbers that show why that state was one of the biggest influences on music at the time! None of these tracks were ever hits, and many have a gritty style that's a few steps slower than rockabilly, with bluesy edges that really mark the color blind origins of some of this music – almost a rock-styled equivalent of some of the New Orleans R&B that was coming out a few years before! This volume is one of the deepest digs in the series – full of rare singles from labels that include Montel, Dart, Jador, Jin
, Tear Drop, and other tiny imprints – all brought together with more than enough notes to fill you in on the whole history of the scene too. Titles include "Satan In Satin" by Johnny Preston, "I Beg Of You" by King Savoy & The Rhythm Rockers, "Train To Nowhere" by Roy Perkins with Jerry Starr & The Clippers, "Blue Eyes" by Phil Cay, "Shirley" by John Fred & The Playboys Band, "The Memories" by Billy Lewis, "Shed So Many Tears" by Johnny Jano, "Time" by Buddy Lorton, "I Can't Live Alone" by Buck Rogers, and "City Police" by Dale Houston.
