Allen Toussaint R.I.P.

Very sad to hear of the passing of New Orleans giant Allen Toussaint. Lee Dorsey's 'Yes We Can', 'Fire on the Bayou' by The Meters as well as his own LP's, 'Toussaint' and 'Motion', all cropped up in my own record collection fairly early on and are cherished there still. Rest easy Sir.

Great man. RIP.

Kind of spooky, but I listened to the River in Reverse, went to bed and woke up to my clock radio telling me he had died. Hadn't listened to that album for years.
