Includes tracks by Clifton Chenier, Dewey Balfa, Boozoo Chavis, Beausoleil and Ao.
This 17-track compilation chronicles some of the best recorded moments in the renaissance of southern Louisiana's French-based music styles, Cajun and zydeco. Culled from the catalogues of several labels -- including Rounder, Swallow, Arhoolie, Maison de Soul, and La Louisianne -- the songs highlight some of the best fiddle, frottoir (rub board), and accordion players of the genres. Contributors include: Clifton Chenier, Boozoo Chavis, Dewey Balfa, Buckwheat Zydeco, Beausoleil, Dennis McGee, Zachary Richard, Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys, and Bruce Daigrepont. It is an exemplary gathering of talent. ~ Roundup Newsletter
