Leo Nocentelli - Another Side

  • Sale
  • Regular price $30.00


At just fourteen, Leo Nocentelli was backing up Otis Redding. Soon after, he was playing on hits for Lee Dorsey, The Supremes, and The Temptations. As an original member of The Meters, Leo wrote instant classics “Cissy Strut” and “Hey Pocky A–Way,” but his greatest moment on record would go totally unknown for decades... until now. As Nocentelli simply puts it, “Things happen for a reason, man.”
