Description

This unique compilation examines the recordings of three legendary New Orleans piano-players, Archibald, Salvador Doucette and James Booker, each of whom had surprisingly short discographies.

John Leon "Archibald" Gross registered a massive hit with his first record, 'Stack-A-Lee (Parts 1 & 2)' which made the national R&B Top 10 in 1950, while follow-ups like 'Shake, Shake Baby', 'Ballin' With Archie' and 'Crescent City Bounce' enjoyed significant regional success.

Salvador Doucette appears herein as a sideman, on eight sides by vocalist Sonny Jones, which have attained huge reputations among record collectors over the decades.

One-time child prodigy James Carroll Booker described by the mighty Dr. John as "a genius", was only fourteen when he cut his first 45, 'Thinkin' Bout My Baby' / 'Doing The Ham Bone' (included herein), on which he was billed as "Little Booker", in 1954.

Both Archibald and Booker were hugely influential players, and the latter would go on to enjoy enormous commercial success in the 1970s.
