Eldridge Holmes

Eldridge Holmes is another mostly unheard of singer out of the Nola. He was produced by the legendary Allen Toussaint throughout most of the 60s, releasing a pretty long string of singles into the mid-70s. His style is like a rawer, less formal Johnny Adams who had more commercial success in the Nola during this period. Here's two of my favorite Holmes tracks, the dance hit "Pop Popcorn Children" and the slowed down groover "Without A Word" which contains some great horns. Enjoy...
