The Allen Toussaint Collection is a good collection of his work mostly from the 70s.

Worpswede says "The Allen Toussaint Collection" is a five-star album.

There's a new rerelease of Lee Dorsey and Toussaint's Yes We Can and Night People as a twofer. I'll have to get this, too.

More:
The Times-Picayune wrote:Like [the song] "Ascension Day," the overall project synthesizes their sensibilities. Costello chose much of the material; Toussaint arranged it. Steve Nieve, the keyboardist in Costello's band, the Imposters, played organ; Toussaint handled the piano. The Imposters rhythm section backs the Toussaint horn section. Costello solos over a foundation laid down by Anthony Brown, Toussaint's guitarist.

They performed a couple of tracks on BBC 2's "Later With Jools Holland" programme. Pretty good. You can watch the whole show, apparently, by clicking the link below. Paul Simon also performed and did a really good version of "Graceland" although i didn't like the tune off his new album much. Warning though, there's David Gilmour doin' a tune from his new offering and in my opinion it's just plain boring.

Anyway, enjoy:
