German-born Chris Strachwitz founded Arhoolie Records in El Cerrito, California in 1960, and over the next 50-plus years, the label released 310 LPs, a half-hundred 45s, and as the digital era dawned, some 375 CDs of blues, folk, Cajun, zydeco, gospel, jazz, country, jazz, and bluegrass that helped define Americana roots music. This handsome box set presents the music of a three-day, 50-year anniversary concert held in February of 2011 to celebrate Arhoolie's legacy, and includes live tracks from some 70 musicians, including Santiago Jimenez, Jr., Ry Cooder, the Creole Belles, the Savoy-Doucet Cajun Band, Country Joe McDonald, the Campbell Brothers, Los Cenzontles, and Taj Mahal. ~ Steve Leggett
