BOBBY CHARLES - See You Later, Alligator


Sello: Rumble Records


Bobby Charles -- born Robert Charles Guidry in Cajun country, Vermilion Parish, Louisiana -- had his life change forever when, at the age of 15, he first heard Fats Domino on the radio. Soon after that, Charles was helping to fortify the "swamp pop" sound he became famous for -- penning this collection's legendary title-track, as well as writing massive hits for Domino, Bill Haley, and Clarence "Frogman" Henry. In addition to writing and recording dozens of '60s Louisiana R&B, and swamp pop classics, Charles would brush elbows with other NOLA legends like Allen Toussaint, and Dr. John, record an album in the early '70s with members of The Band for Albert Grossman's Bearsville label, and perform at The Band's legendary farewell performance, The Last Waltz. That said, nothing he ever did matches the sheer, pure, raw rock & roll power of those late '50s and early '60s sides, which are presented here. This record is a total party, Louisiana-style.
