5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By J. Ross on August 5, 2007
Format: Audio CD
Playing Time - 46:52 -- The 15 songs on "Down Home Saturday Night" were picked to represent "the most rocking, rollicking and partying tracks" the music archivists could find in the Smithsonian Folkways collection originally obtained from the estate of Moses Asch in 1987. Celebrating those venues where everyday folks gathered to kick up their heels on Saturday nights, the album gives us a sampling of old-time, blues, folk, bluegrass, Cajun, Conjunto, Texas jump blues, Zydeco, R&B, western swing, and even country novelty ("Hey Bartender, There's a Big Bug in My Beer"). Obviously designed for listeners with eclectic tastes, this sampler allows us to discover or experience a variety of American roots sounds. These happy, playful songs are all about the time of the week when we relax, unwind, and socialize. Liner notes by Jeff Place suggest that we put this album on the CD player the next time family and friends come over to barbecue.

The music bursts with pep and will surely keep your party lively. How can you go wrong with a Cajun dance-hall stomp featuring accordion, guitar, fiddle and singing? It's interesting to see how compilers arranged the set with so much disparate material from so many genres. While most of the featured artists in the opening tracks are acoustic, by track five we are grooving to the electric jump blues of Erbie Bowser, T. D. Bell and the Blues Specialists. The Texas Playboys' "Big Ball's in Cowtown" is a good song to seque back to a more acoustic setting of Memphis Slim's piano/vocal and the New Lost City Ramblers' old-time string band sound. That group's rendition of "Bill Morgan and his Gal" also appears on the label's new release of songs about money called "If You Ain't Got the Do-Re-Mi" (SFW 40195).

I second the previous reviewer's excellent review. I first heard "Hey Bartender, There's a Big Bug in My Beer" (Warner Williams) on a local station as I was driving through Moab. Made me laugh and i then and there vowed to get my paws onto the album. Wasn't disappointed = most pieces are pure pleasure from the start to finish.

The record in many ways reflects a living tradition - the zydeco tunes alone reminded me of dancing with local ladies in the dives of New Orleans. There is a great blues-Cajun mixture, conjunto and bluegrass-influenced songs, blending seamlessly into the melting pot many of us cherish and love. Can't go wrong with this one.
