Fool to Care [Import]
Joe Barry might not have invented the strand of Louisiana music known as swamp pop, but his huge 1961 hit I’m a Fool to Care did a great deal to establish the sound across America and the world. This all-encompassing 2-CD set includes every recording Joe made for maverick producer Huey Meaux during the 1960s, featuring a handful of previously undocumented titles plus all of the tracks from his Meaux-produced comeback album from the mid-’70s! 52 tracks sourced exclusively from fresh new transfers of the original master tapes and presented in stereo where possible, both firsts for a Joe Barry compilation! A wealth of label shots and a lengthy essay that features material from a largely unpublished 1979 interview with Joe make this a must for all collectors of vintage Texas and Louisiana R&B from its halcyon era! Ace Records.
