This revamped Cajun Classics is just that, classic Cajun artists performing classic Cajun songs. So you will hear those accordion masters Nathan Abshire and Iry LeJeune - respectively the "Muddy Waters" and "Robert Johnson" of Cajun music. Other Kings of Cajun playing the 'squeezebox' are Austin Pitre, Belton Richard, Aldus Roger and Lawrence Walker. As for the Cajun fiddle players, they come no better than Dewey Balfa, Doc Guidry and Michael Doucet (of current Cajun top act Beausoleil). Among the favourite songs are Jolie Blon, The Back Door, Pine Grove Blues and Hippy-Ti-Yo. Totally new additions to the package include Jimmy 'C' Newman's big 1970s hit Lache Pas La Patate and the Cajun Trio's rollicking version of Joseph Falcon's Le Tortillage - better known as Keep A Knocking.
In testimony, Floyd Soileau (the esteemed head of Swallow Records, which provides the bulk of the tracks) says the compilation is "terrific". For our part, we are certain this CD will be seen as the classic Cajun Classics - for the committed fan and for the casual buyer.
