Clifton Chenier: Bayou Blues (LP, 180g Vinyl)

(Cornbread) 12 tracks 1950s - The original 1971 'Specialty' compilation re-issued newly remastered and restored - 100% Virgin vinyl - MP3 download code included

There's a part of the world down south of Shreveport where they do things a little bit different. Some of the people don't even talk English they speak French, in a dialect so far out that they don't even understand it in France. In an increasingly rnechanized America, the people of Cajun country work and fight to make a living like they have since before the Civil War. And that's not all that's different about places like Opelousas and Grand Mamou. Down there, close to the heart of Dixie, is the world's best example of musical integration. Black men and white men alike play music tjat is an incredibly original mixture of sounds from all over: two steps and waltzes
going back to 18th century France, country tunes off the Opry, and blues from everywhere.

It's the only place in the whole world where they play real blues on the accordion In Clifton Chenier's hands the 'squeeze box' becomes a blues natural. This noble instrument, whose popularity in Louisiana is part of the Cajuns' French heritage, proves fully the equal of its upstart cousin the harmonica. On this stomping album Clifton makes it wail righteously. and sings up a Louisiana hurricane to boot.  It's got the toughness af the famed Chicago blues sound but with a subtropical warmth, and a French accent. There's lust nothing else on record like Clifton Chenier.

This album leads off with the biggest record Clifton ever did, a smashing thing called 'Boppin' tne Rock'. All his other Specialty hits are here, newly re-mastered from the original tapes. Nothing has been added, but you will notice a new bite and sparkle to the sound, due to the high frequencies that the old 45's and 78's couldn't quite get across.  In addition there are a half dozen sides never before issued on any speed, among which we might mention a bit of super funk called 'Opelousas Hop' and a thing called 'Yesterday' that Clifton cut back before Paul McCartney even learned to tune a guitar.

So hop in your pirogue and drift on down the bayou to the local juke joint, and jump-up some blues with the magnificent Clifton Chenier.
