The Levee Singers recorded five LP's during the 1960's. The Levee Dixieland Seven made two. Those seven LP's have been digitally remastered and combined into three CD's.

THE LEVEE SINGERS - "THE EARLY YEARS"

The first of the two albums by the Levee Dixieland Seven featured Tommy Loy (trumpet), Tam Mott (trombone), Peyton Park (clarinet), Ed Bernet (banjo), Dick Bernet (piano), Benny Bennett (bass) and Roger Davidson (drums). On the second LP, Lloyd Hebert was playing trombone, Freddie Crane had taken over on piano, Dude Kahn was the new drummer. Those two LP's were combined into one CD called "Weekends at the Levee".

These three CD's contain all the music recorded by the bands that made the Levee what it was during the 1960's. Phil York, one of the top sound engineers in Texas, did a superb job in making the music sound even better than it did on the original LP's.
