BOOK: 300 Songs For 300 Years
“…this isn’t a book you simply read. Instead, every song chronicled begs to be heard… And although the title is 300 Songs for 300 Years, that’s actually an understatement, because once you start learning the rich history of these songs, you’ll want to listen to various versions of them as they’re sung and played by various artists who’ve recorded them over decades laced with triumph, challenge, and, of course pain. From Louis Armstrong’s “Heebie Jeebies” and Jelly Roll Morton’s “Black Bottom Stomp” to “Such a Night” by Dr. John, and Hurray for the Riff Raff’s “The Body Electric;” whether you adore New Orleans and its music, are simply curious about it, or are somewhere in the middle, you’ll be glad you invested in this treasure of a book.”
THREE CD SET: New Orleans Gumbo: The Absolutely Essential 3 CD Collection
All original recordings of many of the songs included in the “300” Book. Includes 60 New Orleans classic recordings by Fat Domino, Dave Bartholomew, Lloyd Price, Smiley Lewis, Art Neville, Lee Dorsey, Little Richard, Huey Piano Smith, Frankie Ford, Ernie K-Doe, Chris Kenner, Shirley and Lee and so many more.
