Chuck Carbo, 'The Voice of New Orleans,' has justly enjoyed a long and successful career. His vocal group, the Spiders, charted two simultaneous hits in the Billboard R&B Top Ten in 1954, while in recent years his recordings of 'Second Line on Monday' and 'Meet Me With Your Black Drawers On' have become Carnival-time favorites. With arrangements by Edward Frank and support from an all-star Crescent City band, including trumpet phenomenon Christian Patrick and young keyboard wizard Davell Crawford, here is pure New Orleans rhythm and blues with a touch of jazz and a strong dose of Creole soul. Includes the new Carnival anthem, 'Hey, Mardi Gras! (Here I Am)' and a brand new song from Dan Penn and Charlie Taylor, 'I'd Rather Beg.' Produced by Scott Billington and Edward Frank.
