This is one of several discs that have been issued over the years featuring Professor Longhair's earliest tracks cut for Star Talent, Mercury, Wasco, and Atlantic. Professor Longhair's Boogie reissues original classics recorded between 1949 and the early '50s in New Orleans with his Shuffling Hungarians and Blues Jumpers on "She Walks Right In," "Hadacol Bounce," "'Mardi in New Orleans," "Bald Head," and 12 other equally essential gems. While the English Catfish label is obscure in the United States, this material is most prominently featured domestically on equally amazing discs from Rhino and Nighthawk.
