Greetings all.

Hey everybody!

It’s Mardi Gras time again, and I am keeping up with the annual tradition by posting another one of my favorite Funky16Corners mixes, ‘Boogaloo Mardi Gras’ (first posted in 2012) in which I have compiled some of the finest New Orleans soul and funk in my crates.

It has everything you need (except for liquor and potato chips) to laissez les bon temps roulez, so get you an um-ba-rella in your hand (thanks Alvin!) , roll out into the street and get your second line on.

This year I’m also re-posting all three volumes of The History of Allen Toussaint from the Funky16Corners Radio Show, because we can’t let the first Mardi Gras since his passing happen without a proper commemoration!
