Entertainment Reviews:

CMJ - 3/22/99, p.26
"...Boozoo's unstoppable, high-powered arsenal of two-steps, blues tunes and waltzes attacks in full-force....Zydeco's young turks and new jacks may be on some kind of revivalist kick, but there's only one Boozoo and he'll always outshine them all..."
Dirty Linen - 8-9/99, p.83
"...There's enough on [this] album to like, like the old-style 'Lucille,' the French singing of 'Allons a Lafayette' and 'Valse de Derniere Fois.' All the simplistic signature Boozoo dance vamps...are there, too..."

This album was recorded nearly 45 years after Boozoo Chavis recorded "Paper in My Shoe," one of the earliest zydeco releases and the truth-filter through which most of what has followed has passed. After growing skeptical of the record business, Chavis quit music to pursue a successful career training racehorses. His return to the music scene has been a welcome event in the '90s. Remarkably, he manages to continue to extract nuances and subtle shadings from within the boundaries of the zydeco genre, while adding his own musical idiosyncrasies to everything that he does. Boozoo Chavis & The Magic Sounds (a most apt moniker) create relentless grooves that transcend by dint of their fiercely honest exuberance.
