Feelin' Right Saturday Night: The Ric & Ron Anthology (Various Artists) on CD

2018 collection. Feelin' Right Saturday Night: The Ric & Ron Anthology commemorates the 60th anniversary of pioneering New Orleans R&B label Ric Records, and it's sister label Ron Records. The Ric and Ron labels occupy a unique place in the history of New Orleans rhythm and blues. Operating for only four years, between 1958 and 1962, these sister imprints document a unique and transitory sound in New Orleans music, between the eras of the hit-making producers and songwriters Dave Bartholomew in the 1950s (Fats Domino, Smiley Lewis) and Allen Toussaint in the 1960s and 1970s (Lee Dorsey, Irma Thomas, the Meters). With a catalog of only 70 45-RPM singles and a couple of obscure albums, the labels released a disproportionate number of truly great and fun records, along with the debut recordings of two iconic New Orleans vocalists, Johnny Adams and Irma Thomas. Feelin' Right Saturday Night: The Ric & Ron Anthology presents many of the most rocking and exciting tracks in the Ric and Ron catalog-the hits, and a few buried treasures, including two previously unreleased tracks: a demo of 'Tipitina' from Professor Longhair and 'Good Enough For Me' from Eddie Bo, as well as new liner notes from GRAMMY award-winning producer/artist Scott Billington.
