Love Letters: The Allen Toussaint Sessions
Aaron Neville's album, Love Letters: The Allen Toussaint Sessions; Available Here on CD.
Aaron Neville is the third oldest of the four Neville Brothers. The brothers were catapulted to international stardom when they started recording together in 1977, but by this point Aaron had spent the last 17 years building up a substantial catalogue of quality soul and funk. Much of this had been recorded under Allen Toussiant's guidance for Toussaint and Marshall Sehorn's Sansu Enterprises. The 25 tracks on this disc represent the best recordings he made for Sansu between 1969 and the formation of The Neville Brothers in 1977. The bonus tracks include tracks that recorded around the same period and 3 newer versions of Neville classics.
