The Cajun sound is alwasy intriguing as heard in movie soundtracks. However getting the good stuff turns out not to be so easy, in my experience at least. This is the Good Stuff! You put it on and before you know it your body is twitching and bouncing to that great Cajun sound. I've got 4 teenage boys in my house who tend towards the inexcusable travesty of music called rap, and even they start to bob when I put this on (of course, they'd never admit that they actually like it!)

If you like Cajun music or if you are unsure or new to the Cajun music scene, this is a great introduction. I have all 3 volumes and this one is a great cross section of the music Louisanna has to offer. You cannot beat this original, from the soul sector of American music. For years I have listenedto this music and I cannot believe that it has not emerged into mainstream America.I guess if it did, it would be the beginning of the end of a true piece of American Folk Art.

I highly reccommend this collection of classic Zydeco musicians. A jazz, country, rocking good time. Open your world to the music that comes from the belly of America! Kids love it too. It is music to grow by.

Having lived in New Orleans for five years and having been to Mardi Gras seven times in my life I am a devoted fan of cajun music.

This CD is a collection of some of the best and most popular songs of that genre.

Play this CD and tell me that you are still unhappy and I will call you a liar.

When the sensitive and compassionate British booted the Acadians out of Nova Scotia in 1755, it was Canada's loss and the U.S.A.'s gain, not the least of which applies to their happy music.

And the distinctive Cajun sound, a patois combining archaic French forms with English, Spanish, German, and India idioms, only serves to make that music all the more delightful.

Listen to any track - especially those involving Zydeco legends Clifton Chenier and Queen Ida, or Cajun singers Rusty & Doug [Kershaw] and Jo-El Sonnier, and I defy you to sit still. C'est nes pas possible, ma cher!

With this package, first released by Rhino in 1990, you also get two pages of background notes written by the then Associate Editor of Living Blues Magazine, Mary Katherine Aldin, as well as a track-by-track commentary on the song and performer. The sound quality is excellent.

Bon temps rouler indeed.

This is a must if you like the "Old Classic Cajin Music". It is truly Cajun and if you have spent any time in LA, MS, or Florida and have gone to any Cajin parties you will recognize the tunes. This album makes me smile every time I put it on - however it makes my son and daughter 21, and 23 roll their eyes - maybe that is enough reason to buy it :)
