The Levee Singers recorded five
LP's during the 1960's. The Levee Dixieland Band made two. Those seven LP's were digitally remastered and combined into three CD's. These 3 CD's contain all the fun music recorded by the bands that made the Levee what it was during the 1960's. Phil
York, one of the top sound
engineers in Texas, did a superb job in making the music sound even better than it did on the original LP's!
Later on, during
the early 2000's, The Levee Singers recorded five more CD's. And, earlier, Ed had opened another Levee in Houston...the
wonderful band there recorded a CD.
To order any of these CD's, email to Ed Bernet at firstname.lastname@example.org...or
call me at 214-691-0001. The cost is $17 per CD, which includes mailing and handling. Thanks for your interest!!
