“A propulsive, rollicking, swamp-boogie joy ride.” –People

“Stanley ‘Buckwheat’ Dural, Jr. is the leader of the world’s hottest zydeco band. Buckwheat is a brilliantly dexterous musician belting it out with a terrific set of pipes while exuding consummate showmanship. From beginning to end, Buck throws it down and slams it sideways.” ...

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Raucous, rowdy, and rambunctious in the best possible light, Buckwheat's Zydeco Party presents nimble-fingered, showstopping accordionist and band-leader Buckwheat Zydeco pulling the listener in for a Louisiana-styled throw down. The rhythms are hot and crazy, the band is tight, and the party is an explosion of two-steps and R&B flavored melodies. Included are the regional hit "Ya-Ya," a fiery take on Zydeco granddaddy Clifton Chenier's "Hot Tamale Baby," and a mix of traditional and original tunes. Furthermore, the Rounder reissue comes with extensive liner notes detailing the Buckwheat Zydeco story as well as the potent impact of the genre on American culture. When high-energy celebration is the mood to invoke, Buckwheat's Zydeco Party is the right fit. --Paige La Grone

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Zydeco Music from a Master January 25, 2001
By Doug B
Format:Audio CD
I bought Buckwheat's Zydeco Party back in 1988 and have enjoyed listening to it on a regular basis ever since. Not really totally Zydeco in the traditional sense, Buckwheat's alblum combines the best qualities of New Orleans Zydeco, R&B,and soul music.
Buckwheat is a virtuoso on the accordian, but he also has a great voice. His backup band has just the right touches of horns and drums to fill out the jams and really make them a pleasure to listen to.
Great, fun and danceable alblum that features exceptional clean production touches. At times the pace of some songs becomes so frantic ("Zydeco Boogie" and "Tutti Frutti", for example) that you just start smiling and tapping your toes. It should compel even the most staid music listener to get up and dance.
I wholeheartedly endorse it. Go buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this disc! October 6, 2010
By Magesse
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the perfect "album" for both estalished Zydeco lovers and folks who just want to see what this music is like. The infectious beats, the instruments, the lyrics, all make this music to get you dancing (even if it is just in your chair at work). Try it, you'll like it.
