Ya! Ya!

Ya! Ya!

This essential LP edition includes Dorsey’s classic debut album, Ya! Ya!, which has been long unavailable on vinyl.

Artist: Lee Dorsey

Genre: Soul

Label: Waxtime

Release date:

It was originally issued in 1961 by the small Fury label and was produced by the always fascinating Allen Toussaint, as well as Marshall Sehorn and the legendary Bobby Robinson. The LP contains highlights from the Crescent City scene like the #1 hit tittle song, "Ya Ya”, plus other joyful R&B cuts such as “Eenie Meenie Mini Mo,” “Yum Yum,” “Chin Chin,” and “Give Me You”. This set showcases Dorsey’s sly, playful, and demonstrative vocals, plus accompaniment by saxophonist Harold Battiste and his band, featuring some of New Orleans’ finest session cats (such as Alvin “Red” Tyler, Roy Montrell, and John Boudreaux).

In addition to the original masterpiece, this WaxTime collector’s edition also includes 3 bonus tracks, consisting of lesser-known singles from the same period.
