MORE INFO

For Record Store Day, a three LP set featuring all forty single sides the legendary New Orleans funk band released on Josie, Reprise & Warner Bros., their entire singles output save for some obscure overseas sides. Most of the material has never been on vinyl since its original 45 release. . That means that you not only get every hit along with its hard-to-find B-side but also the rare single mixes, including the especially rare original mono single mixes of the 1968-1971 Josie sides, very few of which have been reissued. These songs represent the mother lode of New Orleans funk, classic tracks like “Sophisticated Cissy,” “Cissy Strut,” “Look-Ka Py Py,” “Chicken Strut,” “Hand Clapping Song,” “Hey Pocky A-Way,” and more. And, with liner notes by Bill Dahl featuring quotes from Nocentelli, Neville, and Porter, this 3 LP set (one LP each of red, yellow, green vinyl)  offers probably the best retrospective to date of this enormously influential band. (Limited worldwide release of 1000.)
