A rich compilation of rare gems, some of which had never been pressed onto vinyl since their original release. The LP represents a trip into the South of Louisiana, where this music - a blend of worlds and traditions - took shape at the beginning of the 20th century.
It's a selection of tracks from the past, featuring local legends (Nathan Abshire) and unknown craftsmen (Jimmy Peters), who all, in their own way, have left their indelible mark. Waltz, two-step, one-step, blues, the record pays tribute to the unique blend of European dances with African rhythms.
Each track has been weighed up for its historical as well as for its musical interest.
A combination of melodeon and, for the Zydeco side, button accordion, triangle, rub board and fiddles.
This LP comes with sleeve notes and a magnificent poster from one of the masters of Cajun fiddle, Dennis McGhee.
Presented in a silk screened cover and limited to 1.000 copies.
