Description by OLDIES.com:

Chris Kenner was one of the great New Orleans R&B singer/songwriters (the great Allen Toussaint played piano behind Kenner's powerful vocals). He achieved his greatest hit in 1961 when "I Like It Like That" reached #2 on the Pop charts (and was subsequently nominated for a Grammy). His life was cut short by a heart attack when he was only 47 but his work endures in this collection. Includes the original version of "Land Of 1000 Dances."

Product Description:

Includes liner notes by Mark Marymont.
Personnel: Chris Kenner (vocals).
Liner Note Author: Rick Coleman.
Chris Kenner had two timeless singles in "I Like It Like That, Pt. 1," and "Land of 1000 Dances." The former was a big hit for Kenner; the latter was better-known through Wilson Pickett's cover, and both became rock & roll standards. They are highlights on Collectables' I Like It Like That: Golden Classics, which contain the great majority of Kenner's Instant recordings from the early 60s, but they are by no means the only great songs here. Kenner's body of work was remarkably consistent, and while this collection could be presented a little bit better, the music couldn't be any more enjoyable. This is fine New Orleans R&B. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
