Overview

While zydeco and Cajun-influenced hybrids have been the norm in many circles during the '80s and '90s, John Delafose and the Eunice Playboys have remained true to the classic style. The session for Pere et Garcon Zydeco featured predominantly hardcore material, emphasizing the 2-steps, waltzes, and French lyrics at the heart of zydeco/Cajun. Delafose and his son Geno alternated lead vocals and accordion support, each singing and playing with vigor, conviction and authenticity. Meanwhile, the band backed them with equal electricity, and while such tunes as "Watch That Dog," "Morning Train" and "Go Back Where You Been" were lyrical departures, they were as fully in the zydeco framework as "Mon Coeur Fait Mal" or "Grand Mamou."
