Domino Effect: Wing & Federal Recordings 1958-1961 [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import)
UK archive release from the R&B/Rock sax legend. For many years a leading light and featured soloist on innumerable New Orleans R&B sessions - including just about every recording made by his long-term friend and employer Fats Domino - Herb Hardesty has long been admired by Rock 'n' Roll and R&B enthusiasts the world over. Like fellow New Orleans saxophonists, Lee Allen and Red Tyler, Herb seldom recorded under his own name during his peak years. Unlike Red and Lee, Herb's one and only solo album was not issued at the time. Now, almost 55 years later, Ace proudly presents the 12 tracks from that unissued 1958 Mercury album, along with the only sides to have ever been issued commercially under Herb's name, all drawn from the King vaults.
