Overview

Like its predecessor (Another Saturday Night, also on Ace), this is a compilation of Louisiana swamp pop, the admixture of rock, country, blues, pop, and Cajun that continues to thrive in the region. Most of the 26 tracks are vintage sides from the '60s, although there are a few of later origin. Some of the artists are nothing more than names to anyone outside of the state, but actually there are a few more recognizable artists here than on the first volume, including Rusty and Doug Kershaw, Rockin' Sidney, Rod Bernard, Clifton Chenier, and Bobby Charles. It's rock music with an overt good-time flavor, the sonic equivalent of a lazy drawl. In terms of diversity and quality, it actually has a bit of an edge over Another Saturday Night, although it isn't truly landmark stuff. The collection includes Cookie & the Cupcakes' "Mathilda," one of the few national hit singles of the genre (making number 47 in 1959), and the original version of "You Ain't Nothing But Fine" (by Rockin' Sidney), which would be covered by the Fabulous Thunderbirds.
