Boozoo Hoodoo! The Songs of Boozoo Chavis

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
As tribute records go, this one is more consistent than most. Boozoo Chavis was the stuff of legend. He cut zydeco's first ever hit in 1954 with "Paper in My Shoe" and became a star, leaving the music when he felt he was being economically exploited.

Cajun ensembles like Beausoleil and the Hackberry Ramblers -- who play twice, once with Rodney Crowell fronting the band -- lend a hand, as do the Iguanas, Keith Frank, Svare Forsland and Little Queenie, and the New Orleans Klezmer All Stars. These tunes by Chavis are rendered faithfully -- in spirit anyway -- and with plenty of greasy verve.
