Overview

The Mardi Gras Indians Super Sunday Showdown

The diversified strains that comprise New Orleans "Indian" and Mardi Gras music were spotlighted on this anthology. It included vibrant instrumental contributions from The Rebirth Brass Band, spicing up classic jazz, as well as the hoodoo blues of Dr. John, the swamp boogie and soul of Champion Jack Dupree, more sophisticated but equally lowdown stylings from Willie Tee and John Mooney and the fiery sound of such groups as Bo Dollis & The Wild Magnolias and Monk Boudreaux & the Golden Eagles. The eight songs ranged from "Shoo-Fly" to "Oops Upside Your Head" and "Meet De Boys On The Battlefront." It was a delightful session offering the best of the old and recent in New Orleans material.
