RIC & RON Anthology- Feelin Right On Saturday Night!!
[ Craft149 ]
Price: $15.00

This release commemorates the 60th anniversary of pioneering New Orleans R&B label Ric Records, and its sister label Ron Records. The Ric and Ron labels occupy a unique place in the history of New Orleans rhythm and blues. These sister imprints document a unique and transitory sound in New Orleans music, between the eras of the hit-making producers and songwriters Dave Bartholomew in the 1950s (Fats Domino, Smiley Lewis) and Allen Toussaint in the 1960s and 1970s (Lee Dorsey, Irma Thomas, the Meters). With a catalog of only 70 45-RPM singles and a couple of obscure albums, the labels released a disproportionate number of truly great records, along with the debut recordings of two iconic New Orleans vocalists, Johnny Adams and Irma Thomas. Included are two previously unreleased tracks: a demo of 'Tipitina' from Professor Longhair and 'Good Enough For Me' from Eddie Bo..............
