Biography

“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

Amazon.com

Thank Stanley "Buckwheat" Dural and his group Buckwheat Zydeco for the many contemporary zydeco releases now available. It was Buckwheat's major-label breakthrough record, On a Night Like This, that brought this rural Louisiana dance music into the mainstream, at least for a time, and his zesty repertoire that won new legions of fans. His accordion prowess also liberated the instrument from its polka-band image. This excellent collection traces Buckwheat's trajectory from 1979 to 1988, peaking with his rollicking accordion-powered party poppers "Ma 'Tit Fille" and "Zydeco Honky Tonk." His roots are covered, too, with zydeco pioneer Clifton Chenier's "Hot Tamale Baby" and rural-themed numbers like "I Bought a New Raccoon." There's also his collaboration with Eric Clapton--E.C. reprising the ripping solo of his "Why Does Love Got to Be So Sad." But with Buckwheat, love's rarely sad. His deliciously uptempo, two-stepping blend of swamp-funk, rock, and R&B is a tonic for misery of any kind. --Ted Drozdowski

Product Description

Includes I Bought a Raccoon; Bim Bam Thank You Mam; Buck's Hot Rod; Zydeco Boogaloo; Ya Ya; Hot Tamale Baby; Why Does Love Gotta Be So Sad (Eric Clapton on guitar); Hey Good Lookin' (with Dwight Yoakam), and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Is It July 21, 2003
Format:Audio CD
While I'm more of a traditionalist-a la BeauSoleil-I can't get enough of the Zydeco fusion sound of Buckwheat. This man and his band just keep bringing it on and bringing people to their feet.
I've seen Buckwheat live twice-once in New Orleans and once in Lafayette-and the atmosphere is classic Cajun with a great mix of Zydeco.
Buckwheat is the undisputed King of Zydeco hands down and I know you'll enjoy this compilation if you have any love of Louisiana music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Zydeco May 7, 2007

You can always find 1 or 2 songs that you wanted to have on any "collection" Cd. This one is also in that class due to the amount songs in his career. However with the selection you get there is so much to enjoy. I can feel Burbon Street from my car here in Jersey.

4.0 out of 5 stars Make a change in your life September 10, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A friend introduced me to zydeco music, and Buckwheat a few months ago. Till then I was into classic rock. From then on, Buckwheat, and zydeco have taken over. Everytime I listen to him, a smile comes to my face, and I want to do some two stepping. What a feeling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buckwheat Zydeco March 17, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Blues and zydeco hybred if you like both you can't loose with old Buckwheat! He really has his own sound, if you heard him before you already know that. This is a best of and you will have to decide if this blend is for you. Every album is fairly consistant, you might tire of this but you don't have to worry about big let downs when some wild notion results in something you would never buy!

This is a great album. I am looking for a specific song, Rose Mary, and hoped to find it on a CD, but no luck. I still enjoy
Buckwheat and his music.
