Liner Note Author: Dave Penny.
Arranger: Link Davis.
With his cajun fiddle, raw, yelping voice, and visceral mix of country, R&B, proto-rockabilly, and New Orleans sounds, Link Davis was a precursor to the swamp-pop style of the 1950s and '60s. GUMBO YA YA brings together some of Davis's greatest tracks from his peak period of 1948-58, including such swampy gems as "Big Mamou," "Lonely Heart," and "Time Will Tell." This is a fine opportunity to catch up on the legacy of this Louisiana pioneer.
