Feets Don't Fail Me Now

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rose of Sharon Witmer
The title of the CD, Feets Don't Fail Me Now, is the perfect mantra for every zydeco dancer. Dancing the zydeco can easily wear those doggies out, and no dancer worth a bowl of red beans and rice wants to sit down before the dance is over. When the body protests, it is the music that keeps it going. That's where great musicians like Rockin' Dopsie come in. The late accordion player from Carencro, LA, was popular for decades for his intense playing style and ebullient stage persona that could help keep a dancer going.

All Music Guide - Rose of Sharon Witmer
The title of the CD, Feets Don't Fail Me Now, is the perfect mantra for every zydeco dancer. Dancing the zydeco can easily wear those doggies out, and no dancer worth a bowl of red beans and rice wants to sit down before the dance is over. When the body protests, it is the music that keeps it going. That's where great musicians like Rockin' Dopsie come in. The late accordion player from Carencro, LA, was popular for decades for his intense playing style and ebullient stage persona that could help keep a dancer going. In this endeavor, the zydeco accordion master is ably assisted by a fine array of guest musicians, including Waylon Thibodeaux, Michelle Shocked, Kermit Ruffins, and the New Birth Brass Band, as well as family members Rockin' Dopsie Jr., Anthony Dopsie, and Tiger Dopsie. Zydeco music is part blues, part country, and all soul, with an infectious beat that can cause the feet to mysteriously move of their own accord. You can check out the truth of this statement by putting on this record and trying to keep your feet still on the fast-paced title cut, "Jambalaya," and "Matilda." See if they won't do a slow drag on "Worried Life Blues," or a rhythmic pulse to "Baby What You Want Me to Do?," "Don't You Lie to Me," and "Please Come Home." By then, Rockin' Dopsie may have you so deeply under his spell that when he plays "Walking to New Orleans," you will pull out the atlas and hope the Crescent City is not too far away.
