Description

A staggering 112 song collection of music recorded by the person who put New Orleans on the musical map and helped launch the careers of many famous artists.

Cosimo Matassa recorded nearly all the New Orleans R & B and Rock 'N' Roll classics that emanated from one of his four recording studios during the Crescent City's golden age.

Encompassing artists like Little Richard, Fats Domino, Lloyd Price, Art Neville, Huey 'Piano' Smith and many more, this 4CD compilation is bursting with monster hits that shaped the music of today.

Included is an exceptionally informative 32 page booklet together with complete discography and rare photos.
