Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee ALLEN TOUSSAINT is an undisputed musical legend, the embodiment of multi-layered, textured New Orleans R&B, funk and Southern soul. This collection covers the creative highpoint in his career, combining 3 original and highly regarded albums, on one indispensable Double CD set.

All Music described Toussaint as the: “Pianist, producer, and songwriter who almost single-handedly fashioned a fresh, vital New Orleans R&B sound for the 1960s and ’70s.” He has written numerous hits for other artists (Irma Thomas, Ernie K-Doe, Lee Dorsey, Glen Campbell, the Rolling Stones etc). These albums include his own versions of the classic songs ‘From A Whisper To A Scream’, ‘Everything I Do Gonna’ Be Funky’, ‘Southern Nights’, ‘Working In A Coal Mine’, ‘Get Out Of My Life, Woman’ and ‘Basic Lady’. Backing Toussaint are the likes of fellow New Orleans masters Mac ‘Dr John’ Rebennack and The Meters, with backing vocalists Merry Clayton and Venetta Fields also present. With superb audio, 12-page color booklet, detailed notes and bonus tracks - 34 tracks in total.
