15 Louisiana Zydeco Classics

This compilation of classic Zydeco music, part of Arhoolie Record’s America’s Masters series, features three selections by Clifton Chenier (“The King of Zydeco”) and two by his son C.J. Chenier. Rounding out the collection are tracks from John Delafose, the Sam Brothers, NEA National Heritage Fellow Alphonse “Bois Sec” Ardoin and his sons Lawrence “Black” Ardoin and Amede Ardoin, and the legendary Louisiana Creole fiddle player Canray Fontenot. This classic collection captures the unique sound of Zydeco: bluesy accordion and danceable drum beats. Liner notes lists each track’s original album.
