Acadian All Star Special-Pioneering Cajun Recordin
It took a while for Bear Family to find and restore the sound of all these classic Cajun recordings made by legendary producer J.D. Miller in the ’40s and ’50s—and to track down as many survivors and relatives as possible for the 80-page hardcover book that joins the 78 tracks in this LP-sized box. The result: nothing less than a classic roots collection, a fascinating part of American music that was almost lost for all time (only a few copies exist of most of these sides). Terry Clement’s original Diggy Liggy Lo and Papa Cairo’s Big Texas, which Hank Williams adapted into Jambalaya, join La Cravat Happy, Doc and the Boys; Fais Do Do Two Step Jimmy Durbin; Chere Meon Jimmy Choates; Chinaball Special Veteran Playboys; Oakdale Waltz Chuck Guillory; Jole Blonde Amidie Breaux; Prison Waltz Cleveland Mire; Along the River Lee Sonnier; Lover’s Waltz Louis Spell; Chere Tu Tu Pee Wee Broussard; Hippy-Ti-Yo Abe Manuel; Janot Special Austin Pete, and more!
