Feelin' Right Saturday Night: The Ric & Ron Anthology (CD)
Feelin’ Right Saturday Night: The Ric & Ron Anthology commemorates the 60th anniversary of pioneering New Orleans R&B label Ric Records, and its sister label Ron Records. The Ric and Ron labels occupy a unique place in the history of New Orleans rhythm and blues. Operating for only four years, between 1958 and 1962, these sister imprints document a unique and transitory sound in New Orleans music.
This release presents many of the most rocking and exciting tracks in the Ric and Ron catalog—the hits, and a few buried treasures, including two previously unreleased tracks: a demo of “Tipitina” from Professor Longhair and “Good Enough For Me” from Eddie Bo, as well as new liner notes from GRAMMY® award-winning producer/artist Scott Billington.
