Who was/is Chris Kenner ? - CDs, Vinyl LPs, DVD and more

Chris Kenner was born on 25 December 1929 in Kenner, Louisiana, a suburb town of New Orleans. He started out as a spiritual singer with the New Orleans Harmonising Four, and it was a marriage of gospel and New Orleans R&B which gave his records such a distinctive flavour.

He hit the big time in 1961 with the novelty-dance tune, 'I Like It Like That', a No. 2 record on the Instant label which was voted `Best Rock'n'Roll Record of 1961'. He followed this with a local hit, 'Something You Got' and in 1963 'Land Of 1,000 Dances' crept into the charts at No. 77.

This latter song has been covered countless times by artists like Wilson. Pickett, Fats Domino and Tom Jones. Kenner has also re-corded without much success as a comeback for Baton, Imperial (Sick And Tired'), Prigan and Uptown amongst others.
