THE WORLD'S LONGEST DISCLAIMER: That the allmusic.com listing of songs composed by Allen Toussaint spanned 19 pages, not including seven more pages for Naomi Neville, meant that there would be a whole slew of songs that wouldn't be included here. Some of the omissions should be considered egregious. Java and Mother-In-Law immediately come to mind. There was little I could do about that. If I couldn't find it, I couldn't include it.
These tracks are from a wide variety of sources. Audience recordings of some age, audience recordings of more recent vintage, FM broadcast, soundboard, you name it. Consequently, there's a wide variety of quality. I wasn't selective. If I could find it, I included it. There weren't many choices involved.
Whatever flaws there are are on the masters. Some songs cut early or started late. Some tracks were part of bigger jams or medleys. I isolated them from their surroundings as smoothly as I could.
Nine or 10 of these tracks were culled from my personal collection. The majority were courtesy of Dime. I spent about a month collecting these tracks, searching each and every one of the songs credited to Allen Toussaint (as well as Naomi Neville) at least once. Some others, like those listed above, I searched nearly every day. It is a testament to this great resource we have, bt trackers in general and Dime in particular, that this sort of thing is possible.
One side benefit of this project was being exposed to some artists that I've heard of, but never heard, as well as those I'd never heard of. Folks like Nils Landgren, Frankie Miller, Herman Brood and Chuck Prophet, among others, all acquit themselves quite admirably.
