Ray Algere’s only recording session took place on 20 April 1967 and from it came his sole 45 “In My Corner” and You’re Driving Me Crazy. This latter ballad side here is a typically fine Toussaint arrangement especially the saxes, but although Ray gives a fine gospel drenched vocal (love those falsetto bursts) the track didn’t go anywhere. There were so many wonderful NOLA 45s around this time that this one didn’t stand out sadly. Algere still lives locally.
In my corner / You’re driving me crazy ~ TOU-SEA 126 (1967)
Note ~ You can find “You’re Driving Me Crazy” on the Soulscape CD “Confessing”.
