Mr. Shing-A-Ling, the follow up album to Lou Donaldson’s hit album Alligator Boogaloo, has long been considered the best of Donaldson’s funk/soul albums from the late-60s. One listen will tell you why: the incredible grooves on this album are simply irresistible and the alto saxophonist is backed by a who’s who of great soul jazz players including Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Dr. Lonnie Smith on Hammond B-3 organ, Jimmy “Fats” Ponder on guitar, and the great Leo Smith (aka Idris Muhammad) on drums.

Donaldson’s funky version of the Bobby Gentry song “Ode to Billie Joe” from the album is the most sampled track in Blue Note history with artists including A Tribe Called Quest, Kanye West, Drake, Lauryn Hill, Mary J Blige, J Dilla, De La Soul, Eminem, and many more using the track for inspiration.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
