Buckwheat Zydeco Story: A 20 Year Party

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Kerry Dexter
When the accordion rings out to open "Zydeco Boogaloo," you know you're in for a party, and through 14 more tracks culled from his 20-year career as the chief ambassador of Louisiana Creole music, Buckwheat Zydeco leads the dance to familiar corners of the Creole world and beyond. There's the tribute to his mentor, the late Clifton Chenier, in "Hot Tamale Baby," and a blazing improv with Eric Clapton on "Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad?" Buckwheat first brought this music from the bayou to major-label prominence with horns, synthesizers, and stylistic combinations. Bluesy zydeco marks his gumbo-fied version of "Midnight Special" and his original "Skip to My Blues." The ...

Barnes & Noble - Kerry Dexter
When the accordion rings out to open "Zydeco Boogaloo," you know you're in for a party, and through 14 more tracks culled from his 20-year career as the chief ambassador of Louisiana Creole music, Buckwheat Zydeco leads the dance to familiar corners of the Creole world and beyond. There's the tribute to his mentor, the late Clifton Chenier, in "Hot Tamale Baby," and a blazing improv with Eric Clapton on "Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad?" Buckwheat first brought this music from the bayou to major-label prominence with horns, synthesizers, and stylistic combinations. Bluesy zydeco marks his gumbo-fied version of "Midnight Special" and his original "Skip to My Blues." The powerful -- and danceable -- message of "Make a Change," which Buck admits is probably his favorite song in the collection, pairs with the lighthearted "Trouble." It's a toe-tapping, two-steppin' celebration of the career of a musician who has taken zydeco beyond the borders of Louisiana to the hearts of the world.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The Buckwheat Zydeco Story: A 20-Year Party paints a nice portrait of Buckwheat Zydeco's rise from independent labels to stardom, following him from Turning Point, his first record for Rounder in 1983, to 1997's Trouble, the last record he cut for a major label. In the years separating those two albums, he recorded a wealth of great music, more than can fit on a 15-track collection, but The Buckwheat Zydeco Story is nevertheless a good, concise sampler that works as an excellent introduction for neophytes. Yes, longtime followers will probably have a few favorites missing, but they'll only need to turn here for the previously unreleased 1998 live recording of "Hey Baby," which is really good. Curious listeners, however, will find that this gives a nice feeling for the arc of Buckwheat Zydeco's career, and that it gives a good idea of where to turn to next -- whether that would be the early Rounder material or the Island albums that made him a near-household name. That makes the compilation a good introduction to Buckwheat, even if it may not be definitive.
