New Orleans R&B legend Allen Touissaint, RIP

Poor guy, you spelt his name three different ways above the fold alone.


There’s a fourth way his name is spelled. He wrote or produced so many early New Orleans records that they couldn’t keep putting his name on everything. So some of the time he went by “Naomi Neville.”

If you see that name credited, such as the writer of Otis Redding’s hit Pain In My Heart, you know it’s Toussaint.
