The definitive studio album by the piano genius of New Orleans!
A deeply complex character, Booker only released two studio albums in his lifetime. However, Classified — his unintended swan song — offers one of his greatest commercially-released performances. Recorded in 1982, it is primarily the result of a whirlwind, four-hour session. In addition to several originals, the album includes a jaunty repertoire of mainly local fare, including Fats Domino’s “One for the Highway” and Lloyd Price’s “Lawdy Miss Clawdy.” Remixed and remastered audio.
