Paul Gayten & Annie Laurie - Creole Gal

This 1979 Route 66 (KIX-8) LP concentrates on the early part of New Orleans bandleader Paul Gayten’s career, with most of the tracks being recorded for DeLuxe and Regal between 1947 and 1950. The music is in the jump blues style with little sign of the New Orleans R&B style which developed from around 1951/52. “True” is usually credited as being the first national R&B hit for a New Orleans based act.

The sleevenotes by John Broven are based on a 1975 interview with Paul Gayten. There is quite a bit of surface noise present on these tracks.

Ripped from vinyl at 320 kbps. Password = greaseyspoon

I'm afraid I don't have "Since I Fell For You" by Annie Laurie. Perhaps someone out there on the World Wide Web can help? There is also a beautiful version by Ella Johnson recorded in 1946 for Decca.

Heard Paul Gayten on a local FM blues program, loved it and am sampling this offering, for which I thank you most heartily.
