Biography

New Orleans is said to be a city where having a party has been elevated from a casual pastime to a way of life. Nobody understood this better than Professor Longhair, one of the pioneers of New Orleans rhythm & blues. His influence can be heard in Fats Domino, Allen Toussaint and Dr. John, among many others. Known for his unique mix of blues, jazz, calypso, ragtime, and zydeco, ... Read more in Amazon's Professor Longhair Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Fess Rules 29 Sep 2000
By "fessfaninga" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Although this CD has some overlap with other 'fess CDs it is still worth a listen plus you get several classics not found elsewhere. Seems like the good Professor had about a dozen standards and it seems like at 6 of the them show up on every CD. This CD revolves around the standards that substained him through the lean years. Not a bad choice for the first time listener, although Gumbo and Crawfish Fiesta are my personal favorites.
The sound quality of every track is outstanding. I am very impressed with all of the Rhino CD's on that point. This is a real studio album and the sound quality reflects that.
I highly recommend this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Legend in New Orleans; See Why! 13 April 2009
By JusttheGoodStuff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
They broke the mold after Professor Longhair. Incredible and irrepressible blend of Blues and early Rock and Roll with some Funk, Boogie, old-time Jazz and Caribbean rhythm thrown in as lagnappe. Professor Longhair was a mentor to Dr. John, James Booker, Fats Domino and many other fabulous New Orleans musicians. His importance is clear when you notice how often others cite his influence in their music and their lives.

This album has a place of honor on of my "Top 25," a list that ranges from CCR to Gershwin, and from Johnny Rivers to Rimsky-Korsakov. I have four of his albums; this is the best of those.

Join the elite who can truly appreciate the virtues of "Tipitina," "Rum and Coca Cola" and "Her Mind is Gone." Whether you want to dance, sing along or just groove, you'll soon be on a quest for more Professor Longhair - guaranteed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Crawfish Boil Music 25 Jun 2000
By Simon Legree - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a great CD to play at a cookout or crawfish boil; mostly high-energy 'Fess tunes, all with a beat you can step to. Kind of a 'greatest hits' albulm. You can't lay down and die before you've heard 'Jambalaya', lest you want to live eternity in regret.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nearly Perfect Longhair 7 Aug 2007
By The Whip - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD appears to have a factory defect. For a review of the music, see others' comments. Briefly, the CD is a wonderful companion to ROUNDER's "Houseparty New Orleans Style", which offers rareties culled from the same sessions as this CD. PROBLEM[!]: I purchased my CD from Amazon because the copy I already owned had a skip in it. In the Fats Domino Medley - during "Going To The River", there is a brief skip. Fess sings "The Rain/Rain is falling...". There was some surface damage on my CD, so I took it to a local record shop, they fixed the surface scratches, but the same skip remained. When I received my "like new" CD from Amazon, which has NO surface damage, the EXACT SAME SKIP appears. Does anyone have a "Mardi Gras In Baton Rouge" CD on which this skip does NOT exist?
