AllMusic Review by

Dalton Reed's Louisiana Soul Man establishes the singer as an heir to the deep Southern soul of such artists as Otis Redding, Arthur Conley, and Percy Sledge. Despite the title, there's no hint of cajun music or zydeco on the record -- it's pure testifiying from start to finish. The new material is usually quite good, and it should be with songwriters like Doc Pomus, Dr. John, Dan Penn, and Delbert McClinton involved. Louisiana Soul Man is for anyone who believed that pure Southern soul died with Otis Redding.
