Moanin' and Screamin'

Diamond Joe Maryland shares the 'Great Lost New Orleans Soul King' crown with Eldridge Holmes. Every one of the seven singles he cut with Allen Toussaint is killer.

This is his first and creepiest release. I bought this copy for cheap and have never looked for another as I think the crackles and pops only add to the darkness. No sense in denying it.

My regards to Mr. Hernandez, he obviously cared about this record a lot.

From 1961...Moanin' and Screamin' Pt's 1&2
