Fusing diverse elements of blues, barrelhouse boogie-woogie, funk, and gospel, with mambo, rhumba, and second-line street parade rhythms, Professor Longhair's contribution to today's musical vocabulary is immeasurable.

You can't listen to Fats Domino, Dr. John, Allen Toussaint, James Booker, or Huey Smith without recognizing the unique 'Fess' imprinting.

This compilation of B-sides, rarities, and alternate takes, recorded between 1949 and 1957, honours one of the great and unique talents in rock and roll history.
