Louisiana Saturday Night

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger

Most of the 26 tracks are vintage sides from the '60s, although there are a few of later origin.

It's rock music with an overt good-time flavor, the sonic equivalent of a lazy drawl.

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.
