James "Sugar Boy" Crawford
Hey Now! New Orleans Classics 1953-1958 CD

Renowned for the vibrancy and energy of his live shows as much as he was for the quality of his relatively slender discography, the late James 'Sugarboy' Crawford was and always will be a leading light of the New Orleans R&B scene of the mid to late 1950s.
His most famous song Jockamo - better known as Iko Iko - has been much covered and remains one of the Crescent City's musical 'National Anthems', played to this day.
It's here - of course - with 29 other prime examples of Crawford's craft, most of which are making their UK CD debut in this essential collection, almost all of them recorded at the famous studio of the late Cosimo Matassa and all of them chock full of that classic New Orleans sound.
Sadly few were hits at the time and, indeed, more than half the recordings here were not issued at the time - but that is no reflection whatsoever on their premium quality!
Sugar Boy Crawford was very proud of his great records - and he had every reason to be.
Here are the very best of them presented in the highest audio quality with expert remastering and copious annotation.
