is best remembered for his 1961 smash “Mother-in-Law,” which was written and produced by Allen Toussaint
, but K-Doe
's brand of good-natured New Orleans R&B (and his fruitful musical relationship with Toussaint
) runs deeper than just his signature song, as this two-disc, 49-track set shows. Collecting Toussaint
-produced sides that K-Doe
recorded for the Minit, Instant, and Janus imprints between 1960 and 1970, including “Here Come the Girls,” which has resurfaced in the 21st century as the soundtrack to a series of Boots television commercials, this compilation packages a ton of joy, warmth, and fun into the perfect introduction to a wonderful singer and performer.
