Pure Swamp Pop Gold, Vol. 3: Genuine Louisiana Swa

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
It is difficult to pinpoint exactly what "swamp pop" is. The usual definition is that it combines elements of New Orleans R&B and blues with country, Cajun, and black Creole music, and that it hails from the Acadian region of south Louisiana, with a small enclave in southeast Texas. It eschews fiddles and accordions for horns and electric guitars, and in general, applies Cajun and zydeco patterns to pop songs, usually with a decided 1950s/1960s tone. "Sea Of Love," by Phil Phillips, is often cited as an example, and most swamp pop has that same sort of lazy-but-hurry-up feel to it.

"Sea Of Love," by Phil Phillips, is often cited as an example, and most swamp pop has that same sort of lazy-but-hurry-up feel to it. In the end, it seems to be whatever its artists choose to play, the way anything Otis Redding sang ended up being soul. This collection carries the usual CSP Records lineup, with tracks by Van Broussard, Crosscut, Mike Broussard, Kenny Fife, and Kane Glaze, and if the songs presented here do little to clear up exactly what swamp pop is, they do rock. All three of the selections by Van Broussard are standouts, as is Van's cousin Mike Broussard's medley of "Matilda/Raining In My Heart." A sprightly version of "Corine, Corrina," by Wayne Foret, is another highlight, leading one to assume that swamp pop shares at least this much with Cajun and zydeco: the goal is to fill the dance floor.
