Allen Toussaint: Southern Nights (Reprise)
Phil Hardy, Let It Rock, June 1975
ALLEN TOUSSAINT certainly has an impressive track record: Smiley Lewis, 'Ooh Pa Pah Doo', Lee Dorsey, Ernie K-Doe, Benny Spellman, Irma Thomas, Frankie Miller, the Meters and Labelle are just a few of the people he's been closely associated with as a producer and writer. He is a central behind-the-scenes prop in any history of rock: New Orleans' Dave Bartholomew of the Sixties and Seventies.
