Product Description

Product Description

In 1965 the famed talent scout and promotion man, Marshall Sehorn and the legendary producer/musician Allen Toussaint formed the Sansu label. Between them they completely revived the somewhat moribund New Orleans music scene of the mid to late sixties, signing the cream of the city's soul and R&B acts. The bigger acts on Sansu such as Lee Dorsey and The Meters were leased to major labels but all of the local talent appeared on their own imprints including Sansu, Tou-Sea and Dee-Su. The original 'Sehorn's Soul Farm' LP was released in 1982 and collected together 16 tracks recorded by Sansu which formed an important and influential document of New Orleans soul music Now long out of print, the album has achieved iconic status over the years It was joined in 1986 by Volume Two, released in 1986 which also included many more little heard or previously unissued recordings. This is the first time that these albums have appeared on CD and come with 18 bonus tracks not on the original albums including tracks by Lee Dorsey, Betty Harris and The Meters as well as extra material from the talents who made the original albums so desirable.

By freewheeling frankie TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This double CD is a reissue of two well-regarded LPs that Charly issued in 1982 and 1986, plus 18 extra tracks to fill the CDs more generously. The standard of the additional tracks is similar to those on the original LPs so there is no feeling that they are 2nd rate tunes tacked on to make up the numbers - the only slight quibble might be that the Meters and Lee Dorsey tracks (two by each, neither artist featured on the original LPs) are far better known than anything else here - with the possible exception of Aaron Neville's much-sampled Hercules, which may owe its fame to the 1982 compilation anyway. But for an overview of the genre it would be odd to leave them out merely because they were relatively successful compared to any other artists represented here.

And it's fair to say that some of the artists here are VERY obscure - as in they made few records, they sold poorly and little is known about them. About 10 of the 50 tracks weren't issued at the time of recording either, in some cases quite bafflingly given their quality - the overall standard of the tunes here is very high, and doesn't correlate with how well-known the artists are. The music ranges from around 1965 to 1976 (though you won't find that out from the booklet, which is very short on dates) and in terms of styles, it's a fairly even mixture of the unmistakably New Orleans and more typical southern soul, with ballads, soul stompers and early funk workouts. Standouts for me would include the fabulous Gossip by the obscure Diamond Joe (all 4 of his tracks are very good) and, among several tracks by the relatively well-known Ernie K-Doe, Hotcha Mama from 1976 is a stunningly arranged funk tune. The Meters' Cissy Strut is a stone killer too, but you probably knew that. Very little here is less than good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome reissue 8 April 2011
Format:Audio CD
This very affordable double cd is a reissue of two well-respected but somewhat obscure compilations issued first on LP by UK oldies label Charly back in the early 1980s. The material spans about ten years from the mid sixties to the mid seventies. The common theme is that the producer was Allen Toussaint, one of the giants of New Orleans music, and also that the labels that they appeared on were owned by local entrepreneur Marshall Sehorn.

New Orleans soul is not hard to find on cheap reissue CDs but what makes this set worthwhile is that you won't find most of these tracks cropping up on less imaginative compilations, which tend to concentrate on people like Irma Thomas, Aaron Neville and Johnny Adams. These singers are great, don't get me wrong, but the greatest joy of soul oldies is to be found in the little guys that made two or three records and vanished afterward.

Overall, the standard of this set is pretty high, especially on the first disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Many of the lesser lights 17 Sep 2011
By Richard
Format:Audio CD
A 50 tracker which has quite an unusual jewel case as both CDs are housed on one spindle in spite of it opening.But don't bother trying as the back of the spindle won't hold a CD and I had a job getting it back
What's here is not as much New Orleans classics as pretty obscure stuff which represented a heap of flop singles.
A few hits are included in the bonus sections such as Lee Dorsey's Get Out My Life Woman and the Meters' Chicken Strut
The booklet covers details of all the tracks and is nearly an hours' read

3.0 out of 5 stars Great music for the completist 24 Aug 2010
By Luigi Facotti - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
While it's really great to have this long deleted vinyl outing from NOLA now available on CD especially with additional tracks - the source material is a little suspect with either very noisy tape hiss or poor cleaned up 45s - usual Charly practice of cutting corners. The songs are part of an era in Soul that has gone for ever - but many of the more popular tracks are worth tracking down on Kent, Sundazed and Westbound (especially Betty Harris) with markedly superior sound.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good Selection, Atrocious Sound Qualiyt 11 Nov 2011
By James Bennett Apt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was really looking forward to enjoying this CD as it has a nice mixture of well known names (Betty Harris, Lee Dorsey, Ernie K Doe, etc) and lesser known names (Zilla Mayes (!!!), Warren Lee and so on). I loaded it onto my iPod and it sounded so bad I removed it immediately and loaded it in a second time thinking there was some type of mechanical error making the tracks sound so completely wretched. But, alas, it's just a bad sounding cd. My chief complaint is that it has that early digital sound that just grates on the ears. On top of that some of the other songs sound slightly muffled. Sundazed (and plenty of other labels) have issued some of the same material in MUCH better sound. There's not really much to recommend this one despite an interesting song selection. It will annoy me too much having such a disappointing cd lying around so I'm forced to trade it in at the local cd store.
