Absolutely the Best of Cajun & Zydeco, Vol. 1 & 2
Combining two previous releases from the great reissue label Vàrese Sarabande, Absolutely the Best of Cajun and Zydeco, Vol. 1 & 2 covers a wide range of the music of Louisiana. Artists like Terrance Simien, Boozoo Chavis, Buckwheat Zydeco, Clifton Chenier, Queen Ida & Her Zydeco Band, Michael Doucet & Beausoleil, and Beau Jocque make spirited appearances on zydeco classics like "Jolie Blon," "Ya Ya," "My Toot Toot," "My Girl Josephine," and "A Ma Maison." The collection is an excellent place to start investigating this vibrant musical style, and also a great way for zydeco aficionados to have all of their favorites in one place.
