Lee Dorsey's effervescent personality was simple for legendary producer Allen Toussaint to work on and with the Sansu house band - The Meters - they crafted a string of classic New Orleans funk records that resonated around the world; if not always big hits, always hugely influential, and the cream are featured here.
This uncompromising collection captures Dorsey at the top of his game and forms part of a complete retrospective by Charly Records. This is the first time ever that Dorsey's unique output has been accurately curated, uniting all of his contemporaneous recordings, plus unreleased material, inextricably linked with his four landmark albums recorded between 1961 and 1978.
This fabulous package focuses on Lee's breakout album Ride Your Pony ? Get Out Of My Life Woman that propelled the singer to #28 pop/#7 R&B with the Junior Walker inspired title track in 1965.
