    See You Later Alligator CD

    Bobby Charles was a true original - a white kid who unaffectedly sang Rhythm & Blues, and a gifted songwriter who couldn't read or write music or even play an instrument.
    After a club date one night, he wrote See You Later Alligator and a record store owner played it for Len Chess at Chess Records.
    Chess signed him thinking he was black.
    Although Bill Haley covered Alligator and scored a bigger hit with it, the song launched a long recording career for Bobby Charles that also included the original version of a song that became a big hit for Clarence Frogman Henry Don't You Know I Love You.
    Alongside his hits, there's one New Orleans classic after another.
    This set is a fitting tribute to one of the unsung heroes of New Orleans music.
    And speaking of which, Bobby Charles also wrote Fats Domino's classic Walkin' To New Orleans.
