Allen Toussaint Southern Nights on 180g LP
Featuring some of the best songs he's ever written, Southern Nights was Allen Toussaint's 1975 "swing for the fences" attempt at an all out masterpiece. Somewhat of a concept album, with reoccurring instrumental themes popping up between songs, this album spawned at least two hits for other artists. The title track (minus the Lennonesque rotary speaker vocal effect) was a giant hit for Glen Campbell, while "What Do You Want The Girl To Do?" was one of several singles on Boz Skaggs' 1976 smash Silk Degrees and was also recorded by Bonnie Raitt.
