Product Description:

Personnel: James Booker (vocals, piano); Alvin "Red" Tyler (tenor saxophone); James Singleton (bass); John Vidacovich (drums).
Recorded at Ultrasonic Studios, New Orleans, Louisiana between October 18-20, 1982.
While there has suddenly been a flood of CDs featuring masterful New Orleans keyboard wizard and vocalist James Booker, his best release arguably remains Classified. The 12-track set was a landmark album, as Booker displayed every facet of his distinctive style. He did up-tempo blues, quasi-classical, rock and R&B, making them all sound easy while performing frequently awesome keyboard feats. His "Professor Longhair Medley: Bald Head/Tipitina" pays homage to a legend while also demonstrating how much farther Booker's pianistic skills had developed. While his vocals sometimes aren't the equal of his brilliant playing, they're never less than effective and are sometimes almost frightening in their intensity. ~ Ron Wynn
