Overview

When accordion player/singer Steve Riley and his band the Mamou Playboys came out of Louisiana in the late 1980s, it came as a pleasant surprise to hear younger musicians embrace traditional Cajun music with so much enthusiasm. This rewarding CD doesn't contain zydeco or experimental Cajun music a la Wayne Toups & Zydecajun, but instead, is highly traditional in its approach. The band sticks to traditional Cajun songs such as "Ton Papa Et Ta Maman M'ont Jete Dehors," "Valse De La Belle" and "La Pointe Aux Pins," and most of the lyrics are sung in French. The band's supporters commented that its repertoire was something one would expect from older Cajuns, but thankfully, this CD gives us the chance to enjoy these classics with the digital sound quality of 1990.
