“Hercules” from Grammy Award Winning @aaronneville & @dirtydozenbrassband is now available to listen on all platforms!
A brand new version of the Aaron Neville R&B/Soul classic written by legendary New Orleans songwriter Allen Toussaint and originally released in 1973, making this year its 50TH ANNIVERSARY!
This version is a brand new recording from the Take Me to the River New Orleans soundtrack sessions. Featuring the same lineup and personnel as the track “Stompin’ Ground”, which was featured in the documentary / soundtrack and which, this year, won the GRAMMY for Best American Roots Performance.
