    MORE GUMBO STEW is the second volume of rare and unreleased tracks from the vaults of New Orleans' AFO Records.
    The second batch of material from the vaults of Harold Battiste's AFO label is actually a stronger collection than the first (Gumbo Stew), although over half of it was previously unissued. Most of it's good early '60s New Orleans R&B, with genuine highlights like Prince La La's "Need You" (a futuristic foreshadowing of the sort of voodoo rock that Dr. John would play in the late '60s), a couple rambunctious performances by the young Dr. John himself ("The Fix" sounds like the early Animals as played on a department store-quality organ), and the Dr. John-penned "World of Dreams," sung in heart-tugging fashion by Tami Lynn. Also includes tracks by Barbara George, Alvin Robinson, Eddie Bo, and Johnny Adams (a live 1960 performance), as well as Lee Dorsey's smash "Ya Ya" (not recorded at AFO, but included because AFO chief Harold Battiste says he produced it). If you've already got the best New Orleans R&B anthologies and want more of the same, you should make this one of your next stops. ~ Richie Unterberger
