Toussaint, Allen - Live 1989 Chicago Blues Festival (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 23-Float 6265
One of the most purely 'fun' shows I've seen in the last decade was the legendary New Orleans songwriter Allen Toussaint performing solo. He played some of his billions of hits that he wrote for ... well, everyone, and he told great stories.
This is with a band, but it captures some of that show's warm brilliance and charm.

"Live archive release from the New Orleans R&B legend. The Chicago Blues Festival began in 1984. Allen Toussaint headlined on the Sunday night of the 1989 festival. While not strictly blues, Toussaint is considered to be the chief architect of 60s New Orleans R&B. As a producer, songwriter, arranger, and solo artist, he wore all these hats over the course of his lengthy and prolific career. His behind the scenes work alone would've been enough to make him a true legend."
