Roy "Professor Longhair" Byrd was a largely forgotten New Orleans bluesman when this album of his '40s and '50s Atlantic sides appeared in 1972. By decade's end, he was justly celebrated as a thoroughly one-of-a-kind father of rock & roll. These tunes, many initially issued as singles, showcase Longhair's droll vocals and unmatched sense of syncopation. "In the Night," "Tipitina," and "She Walks Right In" are among the hippest things you'll ever hear--no matter what kind of music you like.

Great Music, bad source

I really enjoy listening to Fess play and sing. I am guessing these are sourced from 45 or 78 singles. Scratches and pops occur in almost every track, otherwise good sound, a bit bass shy.
