The Tompkins Square label continues to issue a variety of interesting projects, including this new package that will be of note to hard-core fans of early authentic Cajun music. The 23 tracks here were all originally issued on major labels in 1929 and 1930 --the original 78rpm discs have become so rare that most of these have not been heard by almost anyone in today's group of fans. The artists here are Angelas Lejeune, Blind Uncle Gaspard, and a duo named Babineaux and Guidry --their playing features fiddle and accordion. It's intriguing, lovely music that demonstrates just a part of the amazing variety of regional music that was captured on early commercial records --it's great that these particular recordings have been preserved and presented so nicely in good sound and with excellent notes by Chris King and Ron Brown.
