They Say All Music Guide

The smooth, sly with a wink-in-the-eye singing style of New Orleans’ Lee Dorsey is one of pop and soul’s best-kept secrets, and he never sounded better than when he was teamed with pianist/songwriter/arranger/producer Allen Toussaint. This delightful anthology brings together key tracks from Dorsey and Toussaint’s late-’60s and early-’70s albums, including the immortal “Working in the Coal Mine,” “Ride Your Pony,” “Can You Hear Me,” “Occapella” (later covered by none other than Ringo Starr), and “Sneakin’ Sally Through the Alley.” With wonderfully loose but exact arrangements and horn charts, backup vocals by the Meters, and dosed with early New Orleans funk rhythms, all topped off by Dorsey’s warm, engaging vocals, these are classic tracks that deserve to be better known. – Steve Leggett
