Excellent Cajun Dancehall Music
Kevin Fontenot | New Orleans, LA United States | 12/13/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Few Cajun musicians were as hard playing and hard living as Austin Pitre. A central figure in the accordian revival of the post-war period, little of Pitre's work is available on CD. (The exception being Swallow disc he shares with D. L. Menard.) Pitre was popular on the local dancehall scene and his music has a loud, brash sound that strongly represents that environment. These sides were recorded at Pitre's home and at a dance and show an artist at full power. A welcome reissue of an artist we have too few recordings by. The sound is very good considering that some of these were recorded at a live dance."
