New Orleans Street Singer - Great R&B Sounds of New Orleans


Snooks Eaglin had a reputation as a "Human Jukebox" such was his vast knowledge of songs and in his early teens he performed in a group with Allen Toussaint.

Discovered in his early 20s as a street busker in New Orleans, Eaglin went on to have a small but interesting career recording his first tracks with Louisiana's folklorist, Dr. Harry Oster. These initial recordings are featured on Disc 1 whilst the second disc covers his more blues and R&B style.

This unique performer is long overdue a reappraisal and these early recordings are a must.

Includes fully detailed liner notes.
