Bobby Charles could write a hit, as "Walking to New Orleans" and "See You Later Alligator" proved, but he wasn't necessarily the one to have the hit. Others would come along and record perfect, definitive versions of the songs, while Charles remained behind the scenes — or, perhaps more accurately, down in New Orleans, recording singles for independent labels without ever breaking out of the region. It's not that hard to see why he remained a local favorite, not a star. He had a relaxed delivery that was too idiosyncratic and laid-back, something that was perfect for New Orleans and R&B connoisseurs back then, and right now, which is why WestSide is offering Walking to New Orleans (The Jewel & Paula Recordings 1964-1965).
