Dr. John credited him with putting funk into music and called him the genre's "father." Allen Toussaint deemed him the "Bach of rock." Atlantic Records head honcho Jerry Wexler anointed him the "original creator of the New Orleans piano style." The teacher of icons such as Fats Domino, James Booker, Dr. John, and more, Professor Longhair is in top form on this 1972 Atlantic Records collection which consists of previously released material recorded in 1949 and 1953. Clocking in at No. 222 on Rolling Stone's '500 Greatest Albums of All Time, they write, "There may never have been a funnier, sunnier piano player. His rolling, rumba-tinged style, yodeling vocals and whistling make tracks such as "Tipitina" swinging blasts of joy."
