Album artwork for Hercules - The Minit & Sansu Sessions by Aaron Neville

Part of the New Orleans musical dynasty whose offshoots include The Meters and The Neville Brothers, vocalist Aaron Neville began his solo recording career in 1960. Throughout the 60s and into the 70s, he built up a substantial catalogue of soul and funk, most of which was recorded under producer Allen Toussaint’s guidance for Joe Banashak’s Minit and Instant labels, or for Toussaint and Marshall Sehorn’s Sansu Enterprises.

The newly remastered 180-gram vinyl compilation includes in-depth sleeve notes draws from that period and comprises some of Neville’s best-loved recordings including his first hit ‘Over You’ (US R&B No.21), the classic ‘Hercules’ and a mid-70s re-recording of his 1967 No.1 ‘Tell It Like It Is’, plus a selection made for Bell and for Toussaint’s album label Bandy.

For the 2CD mediabook version, CD 1 consists of all Aaron’s released recordings on the Minit and Instant labels as well as titles first released on Banashak’s album label Bandy. Eight alternate takes from the original Minit sessions complete this overview of all the songs recorded by Aaron between 1960 and 1961 and produced by Alan Toussaint.

The 28 tracks on CD 2 represent the best recordings he made for Sansu between 1969 and the formation of The Neville Brothers in 1977. The bonus tracks include songs recorded around the same period but were not originally released, appearing later on compilations such as 'Sehorn's Soul Farm'.
