Jimmy C. Newman had several country hits in the 1950s before he turned his career increasingly in the direction of traditional Louisiana two-step material, although his approach was never strictly purist. This interesting two-disc set includes the LP that Newman released to support his 1974 hit "Lache Pas la Patate" as well as several sides by Cajun vocalist Vin Bruce and selections from fiddle aces Rufus Thibodeaux and Doc Guidry, highlighting the string band approach to Cajun music rather than the more familiar accordion-driven model. ~ Steve Leggett
