4.0 out of 5 stars Good Stuff! June 18, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is zydeco that leans heavily on traditional Rock'n Roll. I first saw Zachary Richard on stage with Jimmy Buffett at a concert I attended. I was impressed, and proceeded to buy the first recording of his music that I could find. I was lucky that this was the one. I have since bought other albums, and though I like them as well, this is the best. From the rocking title track to the soulful Cote Blanche Bay and on & on this album is one of my favorites. It isn't pure Zydeco, but it is GOOD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy It November 13, 1999
Format:Audio CD
This disc is so good it makes you want to cry. Until Zachary Richard, Cajun music was stuck in a rut. He takes the Cajun basics, adds a little Rock 'N Roll spice, and produces something new, unique and beautiful. To date, he has never again risen to this level.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Favorite June 3, 2000
By Mark
Format:Audio CD
Great album. A wonderful blend of Cajun and Rock n' Roll. Friends ask "Who *is* this guy?"
Richard puts a lot of music on this CD: rockers that'll get you two-steppin', ballads that'll make your heart ache, and a message song, "Sunset On Louisianne" that might make you think a bit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and Original October 2, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Heard two tracks on the local FM album station and went out to buy the CD. The voice and the lyrics were mesmerizing.
Couldn't find the CD--Zachary Richard was listed under "foreign language," and even Rasputin's in Berkeley didn't carry the CD. I sent a fax to the radio station, and next thing I knew, I had the record company calling, thanking me for letting me know that "marketing" was a problem. A pity--this is a truly great album.
Friends who don't like "Cajun music" like this one, and those who do love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Really Needs a Sixth Star March 28, 2001
Format:Audio CD
"Snakebite Love" graps you, and by "Burning" your on fire. Your feet will not stop moving for "Dancing at Double D's", and you will shed a tear for the lost purity of the bayou as you listen to "Sunset on Louisianne." Smell the "Crawfish" in the gumbo, your feel clothes cling to you in the humidity "Down in Congo Square", and as the album ends, you will want some one to share "One Kiss", and if you don't speak French Creole you will wish you did. This is a powerful album which tells a story about a a corner of the U.S. about which most people know little. I have been listening to this CD for years, and if it is possible to wear one out, this one that I will. This album is a treat, it doesn't get much better than this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazon Sampled The Five Weakest Songs On The Disk!! March 9, 2001
Format:Audio CD
What about the heartbreakingly beautiful 'Cote Blanche Bay?' Or the combination of 'Sunset ...' and the grief-stricken 'Madame Sosthene' which makes John Prine's 'Paradise' seem pale? Or the guaranteed cripple-healers 'Dancin ...' and 'Crawfish?' I can't believe you didn't sample 'One Kiss' ("I always ask about you, to find if you're asking about me"). Don't you people want to sell this CD? It isn't bad enough that Zach's music will never get airplay on a commercial radio station, so you people have to hide some of his best work in plain sight? Don't just list them, LISTEN TO THEM!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best kept secrets in modern music June 17, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I first heard "Come On, Sheila" as a single on my local "progressive rock" station and promptly went out and bought the CD. What a wonderful surprise! In my opinion, this may be one of the most underrated disk in many years. Zach goes from strength to strength, from full-blown house rockers such as "Zydeco Jump" to gorgeous ballads such as "Sunset on Louisianne" which take you right to the Bayou. I was able to see him live about five years ago, and the entire club did not sit down from start to finish. If you like rock with a Cajun flair, get this disk!
