This essential release presents Cortez’s two first and finest long-plays: the masterpiece The Happy Organ (1959), which includes the iconic title track, plus his long unavailable and eponymous second album, Dave “Baby” Cortez (1960). Both sensational LPs have been remastered and packaged together in this collector’s edition. This set also contains 9 bonus tracks from the same period, consisting of great rockin’ songs (“You’re Just Right,” “Honey Baby,” “I’m Happy”), R&B staples (“Finger Poppin’,” “You Give Me Heebie Jeebies”), and major hits (1962’s “Rinky Dink”).
