This recording deserves a Grammyy. This is captures the spirit of us in New Orleans better than anything else ever done. This is the authentic thing for those that want to feel it. The "just a prayer for New Orleans" is overwhelming.

This compilation, recorded after Katrina, is more than music... it is the soul of the people of Louisiana. From Alan Toussaint's "Yes We Can Can" to Dr. John's "World I Never Made" to Beausoleil and Randy Newman, the love these artists display for the music and history of this state shines like a beacon. If you love New Orleans, love the Louisiana spirit, love the so many kinds of music that grace the air on Bourbon Street, you need this CD. If you've NEVER heard the sounds so intrinsic to American culture and history, you owe it to yourself to check this one out...and you can make yourself feel better by noting just where some of the proceeds from this labor of love go.

If you are not moved body and soul by this collection, then you must be dead. It is a real tribute to the sounds and people of Louisiana.
