  • $27.50


This 2nd set of early Cajun recordings contains 100 cuts featuring a variety of musicians who were recorded in the 1920s and 1930s (mostly from the 1930s in this case). Highlights include 18 tracks by the great Amede Ardoin (some with Dennis McGhee), Cleoma & Joe Falcon, The Breaux Brothers, and the stunning QUELQUN EST JALOUS by Guillory & LaFleur. The 3rd & 4th discs feature many of the later groups that thrived in the 1930s, like LEO SOILEAU, MILLER’S MERRYMAKERS, HAPPY FATS, HACKBERRY RAMBLERS and NATHAN ABSHIRE. A good sampling of the rich Cajun tradition, and a bargain indeed.
