Alligator Stomp, Vol. 2

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
If you're exploring the pleasures of Louisiana's zydeco and Cajun music, one of the best starting points is Rhino's excellent Alligator Stomp series of the 1990s. Vol. 2's main flaw is its failure to list recording dates -- even if Rhino couldn't find exact recording dates for all of its 18 songs, couldn't the label have at least given the years or approximate years?

For high-energy zydeco, it's hard to go wrong with Queen Ida "My Girl Josephine", Buckwheat Zydeco "Zydeco Boogaloo" or the late Clifton Chenier "Choo Choo Ch-Boogie," "Mama Told Papa". ...

And for traditional Cajun music, listeners won't be disappointed by Iry LeJeune's "Evangeline Special," the Balfa Brothers' version of the familiar "Jolie Blond" or Jo-El Sonnier's hit remake of "Jambalaya," which was originally a hit for country legend Hank Williams, but has become a Cajun standard. Spanning the '40s to the '80s, this gem-laden CD shouldn't be missed.
