Track 1Jolie Blonde and the Three Hï berts: A Cajun Twist to an Old Tale

Jolie Blonde decides to rï der (travel) along the bayou, and before long, this Cajun Goldilocks finds herself growing tired. When she reaches the Hï berts' home, delicious aromas welcome her into the empty house, where she finds three bowls of Mama Hï bert's gumbo. Listeners will learn which bowl tastes bon to Jolie Blonde as they meet the three Hï berts, POOH-YI! (Oh, my!)

Track 2Les Trois Cochons

The three little Cajun pigs--'Ti Joe, 'Ti Claude, and 'Ti Frï re--build houses out of oyster shells, rice, and sugarcane in hopes that the local loup-garou (wolf) will not get inside and eat them for his cochon du lait (pig roast).
How will these three brothers make out? As 'Ti Joe always says, "Vouloir c'est pouvoir" (where there's a will, there's a way).
