This is a very good Kershaw album, with all his great - but one has to wonder.

I have listened to cajun music all of my 48 years. I still think Doug Kershaw is the best. He still gets my dancing shoes on.

Doug Kershaw has issued many albums over the years, a few of which are starting to show up once again in reissues. Of all of those recordings available, what is truly the BEST of the BEST? This CD includes tracks like "Diggy Diggy Lo" from his debut, "The Cajun Way", but also includes lackluster items such as "Jambalaya" and Doug's 6th (that I know of) to date re-make of "Louisiana Man", which would have been better represented from the version on his debut. Doug's music in the early - mid 70's was little more than badly executed Nashville product, although proficiently played, sounded like the assembly line that the town's name conjures up. This is shown in cuts like "Hippy Ti Yo" and "Mama's Got The Know How", "Mamou Two-Step" is a nice, albeit untruthful cover of a tune (no, Doug did NOT write it, its a traditional tune), "You Don't Want My Love" and "Sally Jo" come from the album "Devil's Elbow", which should have been called "Doug Kershaw Records Other Famous People's Songs That Buddy Killen's Publishing Company Owns The Rights To", and a Fats Domino cover of "I'm Walkin'", that sounds so stiff and lethargic that one wonders how it managed to make it to #96 on the charts. The CD contains a rarity, an alternate version of "It Takes All Day To Get Over Night" which any fan of Doug is sure to enjoy hearing. There's no liner notes, aside from production credits. That said, it's a cheap purchase, and everyone who might need just one Doug Kershaw CD in their collection will find that this one will suffice. For the LP listeners, though, go find his "Spanish Moss" LP.

Go see Doug live if you can, as no recording can do him justice.

My sister bought me my first Doug Kershaw LP (Devil's Elbow) for my birthday back in the early '70s. She nor I had ever heard of him. She liked the album cover. I've been a fan ever since. This guy sings and plays like he means it! It's true, it's real, and it's damn good!

There are few artists that can get the fiddle to sing like Kershaw, but the best of Doug Kershaw should really be a lot longer and have some live cuts on it.Think of this as an appetizer. "Louisiana Man," with Kershaw's depiction of life on the bayou is a necessity for anyone who enjoys this type of music, and there is a good cover of Hank Williams's classic "Jambalaya" but the sound overall is very thin and does not do this artist justice. If it's all you can find it's better to have some Kershaw than none, but keep looking, you can do better.

Everytime I think of fiddle music, I think of Doug. I loved to watch him play the fiddle. He could play that fiddle anyway you can imagine, like it was a part of his body. He is the true king of cajun fiddle.

Doug Kershaw has always been one of my favorited artist and really keeps the audience moving. I enjoy all of his music. Being from Louisiana I was familiar with his music. I enjoy seeing and hearing him. Thanks Doug Kershaw for wonderful entertainment.

My first exposure to Doug Kershaw's cajun fiddle was on a trip to New Orleans when I was in college. Wasn't born in Louisiana and never lived there, but his Oklahoman just really loved his music and his superb fiddle playing. Bought my vinyl recordings back in '77 and over the years those records went astray so it was good to reacquaint myself Kershaw's music.
Don't claim to be a music critic, but I know what I like and I like this CD. This is a very good CD, with my favourite being "(Had Not Been For) Sally Jo". I do recommend it.

I have to agree with what Mr. Horek said about Keshaw playing the violin as though it were a part of his body. I was introduced to the only fiddle player I know by an old Country variety show that also introduced me to Donna Fargo. I bought Kershaw's earlier records, including Devil's Elbow, Louisana Man, Mama Kershaw's Boy, Doug Kershaw and Douglas James Kershaw. This CD has some of the pieces I always enjoyed, especially Jambalaya and Mama's got the Know How. It does not have Devil's Elbow, though, or another favorite of mine, Best Years of My Life. Still, it is nice to hear the better quality of the CD than my old, scratchy records. I might add my roommate and I were very fortunate to be at the Pima County Fair (in Tucson, AZ) the year he performed live. Oh, what an experience to see such an energetic, energized and talented musician in person!!
