They were called 'The Sweethearts Of The Blues', and, for a decade, they made some of the most exciting and offbeat music to come out of New Orleans. Let The Good Times Roll and Feel So Good were just the tip of the iceberg. With the hottest New Orleans studio musicians behind them, they put a new twist on Crescent City R&B, making the most of the contrast between Shirley's unique voice and Lee's rich bluesy baritone. The 111 songs on these 4 CDs include every recording that Shirley & Lee made together. Recorded between 1952 and 1963 for Aladdin, Warwick and Imperial, this includes classics like
Rock All Night, I'm Gone, Everybody's Rockin', The Flirt, Rockin' With The Clock, as well as the unique boy-girl saga, Shirley Come Back, Shirley's Back, The Proposal, etc. that had R&B record-buyers captivated in the Fifties. Beneath it all, there's the fabulous sound of New Orleans R&B. The city's finest are here: Earl Palmer, Dave Bartholomew, Herbert Hardesty, Red Tyler, Lee Allen... the greatest session men in R&B!
