Anyone with an appreciation for vintage Cajun music will treasure this 2-CD set, which is nothing less than spectacular both in the quality of the music and the highly attractive presentation (which includes superb remastering of the old 78s by Chris King, who has also written the notes).Ê The set contains all 34 of the songs and tunes that Ardoin recorded (many also featuring the wonderful fiddling of Dennis McGee).Ê Collectors of the old 78s will realize what a feat it was just to find clean copies of the original recordsÑsome of these extreme rarities have only turned up in the past few yearsÊ (a complete collection like this could not have been done even 5 or 6 years ago).Ê Accompanying himself on the accordion, Ardoin sang in a soul-searing style that influenced other Cajun musicians such as the great Iry Lejeune.Ê Tragically, ArdoinÕs musical career was ended sometime inÊ the 1930s with a senseless beating, but at least he left a fair number of superb recordings that are lovingly presented here.Ê (2-CD set)
