This Ain't No Mouse Music! (Soundtrack)

“This Ain’t No Mouse Music!” is the companion soundtrack to the documentary film of the same name. Released in 2014, the film followed Arhoolie founder Chris Strachwitz as he revisited many of the singers and musicians whom he had recorded over a 50-year period. Arhoolie, a slang expression for “field holler,” focused on American roots music ranging from country blues to Cajun and zydeco, Tex-Mex and norteño, bluegrass, and New Orleans jazz. The music in this 2-CD soundtrack is only a small sample of what Strachwitz recorded or produced.
