New Vinyl Record - Eaglin, Snooks - Imperial Recordings
Limited colored vinyl LP pressing. Produced by the great New Orleans producer Dave Bartholomew, these early '60s recordings for the Imperial label are a perfect showcase for the eclectic blues guitarist and singer known as Snooks Eaglin. Snooks' ability to play a wide range of songs in different styles and make them his own, earned him the nickname "The Human Jukebox". This is a superb introduction to his music. Some sort of hot Creole recipe based on many different ingredients (blues, rock n' roll, country, Latin plus a hint of Ray Charles) all mixed up into a deep R&B soup.
