Charlie Gillett - Art Neville 1970's

Another segment of Honky Tonk radio show from back in the mid 70's when Charlie talked to Art Neville about his musical career prior to the Neville Brothers forming.
Fascinating insights into the music world of New Orleans and great records including Allen Toussaint, The Meters, Jerry Byrne and Chris Kenner.

Wikipedia says-

Art Neville (born December 17, 1937) is an American singer and keyboardist from New Orleans. Neville is a part of one of the most famous musical families of New Orleans, the Neville Brothers. He was also a founding member of The Meters, and also continues to play with the spinoff group the Funky Meters along with his son Ian on guitar. As a session musician, he has played on recordings by many notable artists from New Orleans and elsewhere, including LaBelle (on "Lady Marmalade"), Paul McCartney, Lee Dorsey, Dr. John and Professor Longhair. Art's daughter, Arthel Neville is a journalist and television personality.

Thanks again go to John Mister who supplied this old wobbly cassette from his archive. I tried it in several tape machines and this is the best I could get!

Thanks again for the very valuable service you are doing posting Charlie's old shows.

I wonder if it would be possible to post mediafire links for the Roy Brown show, the rapidshare links are already expired.

Much thanks.

Thanks Patty and David, sorry to hear the rapidshare links have expired so quickly- I knew it was a mistake using them, Ive had trouble before. Will try and get the Roy Brown shows up again soon.

Charlie Gillett was the best radio presenter in UK and the most qualified musicologist and writer on rock and roll and other forms of popular music. RIP.
