Everything I Do Gonh Be Funky Allen Toussaint cd
Many of today's music fans might only know the name of Allen Toussaint from his work with Elvis Costello in 2006 on the album River In Reverse, but his career stretches back over 50 years and includes a multitude of hit records as a composer, arranger, producer and performer.
 
This collection covers 20 years of Toussaint's remarkable career, beginning with his first appearances on record as a session pianist, his first solo recordings in 1958 under the name Al Tousan and ending in the 1970s with his timeless songs and productions for artists such as Lee Dorsey and The Meters. 
 
In between, there are original versions of tunes recorded by Al Hirt and Herb Alpert and the original versions of material that later became famous in renditions by The Rolling Stones, The Yardbirds, Herman's Hermits, The Dave Clark Five, Otis Redding and Wilson Pickett.
