Mardi Gras in New Orleans [Collectables]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
Professor Longhair's Mardi Gras in New Orleans is a strange collection because in essence, it is a CD reissue of his Mardi Gras in New Orleans from Nighthawk's 1981 release; but not quite.

While there isn't a weak cut in this scant bunch, "Ball the Wall," "Longhair's Blues-Rhumba," and "Tipitina," are the standouts.
