Reuben Bell’s been dead for 15 years but we still listen to his music all the time at the Scrumptious house. You should too. The Shreveport native remains undiscovered even after recording deep soul classics like “What’s Happening To The World” and “I Still Have To Say Goodby”

Listen to C.P Love today. Carleton Pierre Love was born in New Orleans in 1945. If you were hanging out on Bourbon Street from the late 70s to the mid-80s you certainly heard Love gigging in any of the dozens of nightclubs that featured live, local music. Way back when, Love fronted an outfit that featured Professor Longhair. Only our readers from the Korean War-era will recall that group.
