Lee Dorsey – Ride Your Pony

Classic. Prizefighting boxer turned Soul/R&B superstar Lee Dorsey‘s second album “Ride Your Pony” that surfaced in 1966 captures the the soul of the 60’s New Orleans sound. Sun drenched R&B, with the amazing instrumentation of The Meters backing up Dorsey on this record. It’s fun, funky, and it shakes you up. This combo was a hit-makin machine during their time together creating odes to lovers, break-ups, cars, and strippers. Everything is in its right place….including wobbly piano, fresh vocal harmonies, horn stabs, and chicken scratch guitars. Essential.
