After The Rain

Irma Thomas continues to reign as the “Soul Queen of New Orleans.” Reissued on vinyl for the first time, After The Rain was recorded in Louisiana only months after Hurricane Katrina. A majority of the songs were chosen prior to the hurricane, but the album’s prophetic themes offer a message of hope. The album earned Thomas her first GRAMMY® for Best Contemporary Blues Album.

Classified

A deeply complex character, Booker only released two studio albums in his lifetime. However, Classified—his unintended swan song—offers one of his greatest commercially-released performances. Recorded in 1982, it is primarily the result of a whirlwind, four-hour session. In addition to several originals, the album includes a jaunty repertoire of mainly local fare, including Fats Domino’s “One for the Highway” and Lloyd Price’s “Lawdy Miss Clawdy.”
