Professor Longhair - Live on the Queen Mary Vinyl LP
Professor Longhair Live on the Queen Mary Vinyl LP
Newly Remastered 180g Vinyl LP Reissue of Legendary Professor Longhair Performance from the ‘Venus and Mars' Album Release Party Thrown by Paul and Linda McCartney in 1975!
Originally released in 1978 on Harvest Records, Professor Longhair's Live on the Queen Mary documents a legendary performance from the Venus and Mars album release party thrown by Paul and Linda McCartney and Wings in 1975.
Live on the Queen Mary was recorded March 24, 1975 on its titular cruise ship, while docked in Long Beach, CA. The recording is a prime example of the work of an artist whose influence in New Orleans music was felt by such fellow greats as Fats Domino, Allen Toussaint and Dr. John. Highlights include the rollicking "Mess Around," the standards "Stagger Lee," "Everyday I Have the Blues," "I'm Movin' On," and the Professor own hits "Mardi Gras in New Orleans" and "Tipitina."
Newly remastered on 180-gram vinyl LP with a foreword by Hugh Laurie who writes, "...that live version of ‘Tipitina,' oh sweet Lord. If the record had nothing else on it, it would still be a treasure beyond price."
