Roland Stone
New Orleans R&B and Swamp Pop CD


Although destined to remain a No-Hit-Wonder, RRoland Stone is acknowledged as one of the finest white voices to emerge from New Orleans.
Aaron Neville once described him as “the singingest white guy I’ve ever heard.”
Stone had a huge regional hit with Just A Moment, which sold 100,000+ copies in New Orleans and Louisiana, despite a strong rival version by Ike Clanton.
Preacher’s Daughter, Something Special and Everybody’s Lonesome For Somebody Else were also significant regional successes, as was Benny Spellman’s Roll On, on which Roland shared the lead vocals.
His brief recorded output is held in high regard, while his sole LP, also titled Just A Moment (featured here in its entirety, including three tracks which were originally credited to Jimmy Clanton), has long been a collectors’ item.
Much of this material has been unavailable on CD for many years.
