Laissez les bon temps rouler! (Let the good times roll!)
Gumbeaux13 | New Orleans, LA United States | 09/04/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Living in south Louisiana affords me the luxury of being exposed to a vast array of awesome Cajun bands. I have several bands that I'll see at the drop of a crawfish, but BeauSoleil is and always will be my favorite. I've been to concerts throughout the region from Lafayette to New Orleans and the music and performances are outstanding.This is a smashing collection of both vocal and instrumental compositions from a group of very talented, energetic and honed musicians. Michael Doucet is a standout who has produced solo projects, although his best work is with the band singin' and fiddlin' and passing a good time- especially on stage.BeauSoleil has been on the Cajun music scene, to my knowledge, since the early '70s. Unlike Zydeco and fusion bands, they play a more traditional form of Cajun music that has been 'instrumental' in preserving the Acadian heritage of Louisiana in that most of the songs are sung in Cajun French.This CD is well worth the price for a truly uplifting experience of great Cajun music."

"If THIS tells you anything, I owned this CD up until last summer when I lost it ... I simply HAVE to have it back (it's felt like a part of me has been missing!!) and so just completed my order here on-line. Considering I have been born and raised here in Wisconsin (about as far away from the bayous of LA as you can get!), this must say something for this band and their incredibly rich sound with roots buried deep into Acadian ("

"BeauSoleil's music has you tapping your toes, then getting up to move to their music! Love the vocals, love the instrumentals! They are just fantastic! This IS the Best of BeauSoleil!"
