Tommy Ridgley is a real New Orleans legend, having remained active as a popular lead singer and bandleader for almost 50 years following his 1949 Imperial Records debut.  With a style based on the genre of jump blues that preceded the emergence of rhythm & blues in the early 1950s, he was well-suited to pleasing audiences in New Orleans and throughout the Gulf South as a bandleader, R&B stylist, and serious blues belter. “Ooh Poo Pah Doo” is a stone-cold classic of certified R&B roots written and originally recorded by Jesse Hill. Ridgley makes it his own with his version, cut it true to the original a few years before his death in 1999.
