In the past I've referred to Charles Brimmer as the Al Green of New Orleans; I'd call Eldridge the David Ruffins of NOLA singers. Same kind of power and passion to my ears.
The collection offered here IS NOT the one that goes with this or any other CD cover for that matter. The CD I started with had 18 tracks, but I have, over time, managed (with a little help from my friends) to find 35 tracks of glorious New Orleans Soul!
As far as I can tell, this represents his entire output. If you listen carefully you can hear the development of New Orleans Soul over this time frame reflected through his material and delivery.
Even though The Meters are backing him through most of the second half of the collection, it is unlikely that they were ever actually in the studio together. The scarceness of information on this guy would lead me to simply paraphrasing the notes of my disc so I'm going to substitute a picture for a write up.
