Vinyl LP pressing. Louisiana Red recorded numerous songs throughout the 1960s, though he might be best known for his Billboard singles hit "I'm Too Poor To Die" in 1964. His Louisiana Red Sings The Blues album released in 1972 on a ATCO Records subsidiary didn't sell well, and Red was subsequently dropped by the label. After the death of his beloved first wife from cancer, Red recorded two highly-regarded acoustic albums for Blue Labor Records (commandeered by Kent Cooper and jazz arranger/composer Heiner Stadler), 1975's Sweet Blood Call and 1976's Dead Stray Dog, both receiving widespread critical acclaim for their introspective and intimate performances.
