A 16-track collection that shows the whole world how to party during Mardi Gras time in New Orleans, this compilation features some fun tracks from a fine sampling of Louisiana bands playing all kinds of music. Featured are tunes from artists like the Neville Brothers, Dr. John, Professor Longhair, and Sugar Boy Crawford, among others. Mardi Gras Essentials offers a fine substitute for road-tripping to New Orleans with a car full of beer and beads, and brings a hint of spring to an otherwise dark time.
