Killer New Orleans Soul classics!

In 1965 the famed talent scout and promotion man, Marshall Sehorn and the legendary producer/musician Allen Toussaint formed the Sansu label. Between them they completely revived the somewhat moribund New Orleans music scene of the mid to late sixties, signing the cream of the city's soul and R&B acts.

The original Sehorn's Soul Farm LP was released in 1982 and collected together 16 tracks recorded by Sansu. The original LP was part of a batch of four albums collecting together the more obscure releases of the soul music labels that Charly represented at the time.  Now long out of print, the album has achieved iconic status over the years since its release as an important and influential document of New Orleans soul music and is still constantly referred to in various overviews of New Orleans soul. Volume Two was released in 1986 and also included many more little heard or previously unissued recordings.

This is the first time that these albums have appeared on CD and come with 18 bonus tracks not on the original albums including tracks by Lee Dorsey, Betty Harris and The Meters as well as extra material from the talents who made the original albums so exciting.
