Swamp Gold, Vol. 1 contains a number of early zydeco and New Orleans R&B cuts by the likes of Phil Bo, Rockin' Sidney, Jonnie Allan, Rod Bernard, Irma Thomas and Warren Storm. All of the music here is tremendously exciting, and some of it -- such as Lil' Bob and the Lollipops' "I Got Loaded," and Johnnie Allan's "Lonely Days and Lonely Nights," and Irma Thomas' "It's Raining" -- is genuinely classic, making the record a necessary addition to a New Orleans musical collection. ~ Thom Owens
