Last Mardi Gras
New - LP - SD 2-4001
Sealed 1982 Heavy Vinyl 2LP Gatefold Original. Tiny Cut Out Hole. Recorded Live At The Tipitina Club, 1978. “Recorded By The Infamous Albert Goldman (Of The Lives Of John Lennon Fame), The Last Mardi Gras Is A Phenomenal Document Of Professor Longhair's Talents. The Sound Quality Is Impressive, But What Truly Puts The Show Over Is Longhair's Energy. Even At 59 Years Old, He Still Sounds As Feisty As Ever, Unleashing Torrents Of Piano Grooves On "Mess Around," Wailing Mournfully On "Everyday (I Have The Blues)," And Delivering One Of The Wildest Versions Of "Got My Mojo Working" Ever Performed. Backed By A Solid Band That Includes A Crack Rhythm Section And Two Sterling Sax Players, And Surrounded By An Enthusiastic Hometown Crowd, Longhair Comes Alive In A Way That Surpasses Even His Best Studio Recordings. (It's Even More Endearing To Hear The Professor Murmur A Quiet, Heartfelt "Thank You" After Each Song.) The Song Listing Is Well-Chosen, Mixing Impressive Covers Like "Stag-O-Lee" And "Jambalaya" With Most Of Longhair's Best Songs, Including A Version Of "Bald Head" That Rivals The Original Studio Take. The Last Mardi Gras Is As Definitive A Professor Longhair Album As Any Compilation, And Both Fans And Newcomers Should Do Their Best To Find This Incredible Document.” Victor W. Valdivia, AMG. more

Live On The Queen Mary
Used - LP - SW 11790
1978 Harvest Label Original. Front Cover Photo By Linda McCartney. “Ask What Was Paul And Linda McCartney's Most Important Contribution To Music, And You Just Might Get The Answer -- This Album, Which Is Also More Exciting Than Anything Wings Ever Did. Professor Longhair's First Live Recording Came About At A March 24, 1975 Party Hosted By The McCartneys Aboard The Queen Mary In Long Beach, CA. It Captures Some Of The Excitement That Ahmet Ertegun And Several Lesser-Known Talent Scouts Found When They Came Upon Harry Roeland Byrd Playing Road Houses Around New Orleans In The Late 1940s. Highlights Include The Rollicking "Mess Around," And The Standards "Stagger Lee," "Everyday I Have The Blues," "I'm Movin' On," And His Hits "Mardi Gras In New Orleans" And "Tipitina." The Lack Of Instrumental Credits Prevents One From Praising The Lead Guitarist By Name For His Playing On "Everyday I Have The Blues" And "I'm Movin' On," But He And The Rest Of The Band Still Do Well Backing This Legend.” Bruce Eder, All Music Guide. more

Rock 'N' Roll Gumbo
Used - LP - DC-3006
1985 US Reissue, Housed In A Glossy Jacket. Mastered By Bernie Grudman. Small Corner Ding. "Recorded In 1974, This Album Almost Never Saw The Light Of Day. Fortunately, The Master Tapes Were Found And The Album Was Released Posthumously. Professor Longhair Was A Giant In The New Orleans Music Community, But Had Not Recorded In Over Ten Years When He Was Convinced To Start Playing Again. From The Opening Riffs, One Can Understand The Stature Of Professor Longhair As A Great Pianist -- He Demonstrates That He Is Equally At Home Playing Rhumba Boogie, Blues Songs, And Calypso. He Plays New Orleans Standards (Many Penned By Himself), But What Makes This Recording A Classic Is The Chance To Hear Him Play With Guitarist Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown. The Interplay Of These Music Veterans Is Mesmerizing. The Piano Playing Is Breathtaking, And Has A Percussive Quality Unlike Any Other Player Before Or Since. It Is Hard To Believe That Professor Longhair Languished In Obscurity For So Many Years After Hearing The Jubilance Of "Mardi Gras In New Orleans," A Song That Will Have You Tapping Your Feet And Hands As If You Were In The Parade. This Album Is Essential For Fans Of New Orleans Music And Those Aspiring To Be Rock & Roll Pianists." AMG Review By Vik Iyengar. more
