More Info:

Tommy Ridgely was born, raised and died in New Orleans and was a consistently popular entertainer in the city and it's environs without ever achieving a major hit. It was at the city's premier R&B venue, the legendary Dew Drop Inn, where he made his lasting impression and established his band The Untouchables as the most famous house band in the club's history. Many of these 30 tracks including songs like "Lavinia" were major chart hits in New Orleans and Louisiana. The titles we have selected cover his recordings between 1949 and 1962 and feature Blues, R&B and the emerging sounds of Soul music all of which he excelled at.
