Mr Joe's Jambalaya / Loaded Down with the Blues

US Release Date: March 13, 2012

This 2-CD set collects 2 original Charly LPs, which have never previously been available on CD. Originally released in 1987 and 1988 respectively, Loaded Down With The Blues and the double album Mr Joe's Jambalaya,, collected classic tracks from Joe Banashak's legendary New Orleans labels, Minit, Instant, Alon and Seven-B.

New Orleans was a pretty special place in the late 50s and early 60s. Its music scene flourished and a string of quality artists released a stream of classic tracks. Joe Banashak was an instrumental figure in this process. In 1959, following years working for various other labels he founded his own label, Minit, the first label to be based in New Orleans.

"At the audition these people came; Irma Thomas, Joe Tex, Benny Spellman, Ernie K.Doe, The Del Royals, Aaron Neville, Art Neville, Larry Williams, Lee Diamond and Jess Hill. Allen Toussaint came to play behind Aaron, I think, but he ended up playing behind a few other people..."

Minit, and its affiliated labels, went on to release many of the artists listed above, with the tracks often produced and written by Allen Toussaint. This set collects most of Banashak's big hits along with numerous less well-known but equally worthy recordings.
