New Orleans native Alfred “Uganda” Roberts played on the Meters’ “Afrika” and “Hey Pocky Way,” on Allen Toussaint’s Life, Love, and Faith (1972), and on The Wild Magnolias (1974). Roberts toured and recorded with Professor Longhair for eight years and is featured on Longhair’s Rock N Roll Gumbo (1977) with Snooks Eaglin and “Gatemouth” Brown, and on Fess’ last studio album, Crawfish Fiesta (1980). The London Concert (1978) is a duo performance by Longhair and Roberts. Roberts toured with Willie Tee and the Wild Magnolias from 1980 until 1986, when he took a hiatus from music, coming out of semi-retirement to tour and record on Dr. John’s Goin’ Back to New Orleans (1992), Craig Brenner’s Play It Again, Professor! (1995) and Man At The Piano (1997), and Dr. John’s Dis, Dat, or D’udda (2004).

Recording engineers for Live At The Old Mint were Danny Kadar at the Old U.S. Mint and Jeff Mountjoy at the Artsgarden, with mixing and mastering by Jacob Belser of Primary Sound Studios, and graphic design by Merridee LaMantia.
