6th & Baronne

|January 28, 2010 | Found Sounds, New Orleans Music

I recently managed to score a mint vinyl copy of a classic bounce track – UNLV’s seminal 6th & Baronne. It was one of the very first releases from Cash Money Records, and remains a crowd-moving favorite in New Orleans. Here’s what bounce scholar Ballzack has to say about it :

” This song is great for many reasons… the piano is really dramatic and immediately draws you in, UNLV’s sing- song delivery is hypnotizing, it sounds like it was recorded on a 4 track, and Mannie Fresh’s production is all heart. It’s a great song that gets you bucked up as soon it starts. If they released it now, it would still be great. It’s simply New Orleans punk rock at its finest. ”
