Professor Longhair - Mardi Gras In New Orleans Live 1975

By no means the best live recording from Professor Longhair with, to my ears, a very out of place harmonica player. Still for the completists out there worth while listening to.
Recorded in 1975 in Germany.

Maybe Alan Balfour can give us some more info on this recording?

I don't have any information about this recording, but I can say that there is another recording by the same name, on which Fess is performing with a full band. This is a welcome addition to my Prof. Longhair collection, and while the sound quality is not great, and I'm not a fan of harmonica (though I don't find it very intrusive here - unlike the pans on some Prof. Longhair recordings!), this is a very good performance. Thanks for posting it!
