Aaron Neville Hercules 2CD
Aaron Neville is the third oldest of the four Neville Brothers. The brothers were catapulted to international stardom when they started recording together in 1977, but by this point Aaron had spent the last 17 years building up a substantial catalogue of quality soul and funk. Much of this had been recorded under Allen Toussiant's guidance for Joe Banashak's Minit and Instant labels or for Toussaint and Marshall Sehorn's Sansu Enterprises.
CD 1 in this set consists of all Aaron's released recordings on the Minit and Instant labels as well as a couple of titles first released on Banashak's album label Bandy. Eight alternate takes from the original Minit sessions complete this overview of all the songs recorded by Aaron between 1960 and 1961 and produced by Alan Toussaint.
The 28 tracks on CD 2 represent the best recordings he made for Sansu between 1969 and the formation of The Neville Brothers in 1977. The bonus tracks include tracks that recorded around the same period but were not originally released at the time, appearing later on compilations such as 'Sehorn's Soul Farm'.
