CD Reviews

Light the BBQ pit, Move the furniture and have at it!
P. Collins | LAS VEGAS, NV USA | 07/12/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you are looking for the kind of CD that has you "car dancing" like an idiot, this is the one to buy. This is one of the best examples of button accordian around, by one of the two most influental men in Zydeco (clifton Chernier being the other. From the opening song, "Dance All Night," your body starts to move on it's own-there is no need to look for the beat. All the way through, Boozo's hard edge voice drives to your very soul, and makes you want to howl right along with him. Be sure to send the kids away, then turn the volume all the way up for the X-rated songs "Uncle Bud" and "Deacon Jones," both long time Bar favorites by the master and now availible for home use. This disk will get the party jumpin' and the Spirits flying. By far, thisis the one disk I pull out for every party."

"I've always heard about his x-rated records that they used to sell from underneath the counter at the record stores. Now I get to hear them. I'm not sure anyone but Boozoo could have pulled it off. Kinda raw, but in fun. After hearing the sanitized versions for so many years, its sort of like "hey, he can't say that on a cd". Maybe I need to get out more.

Boozoo's timing is ephemeral. Lots of stories about people having a hard time following him when playing with him. It shows more so in this particular cd than others I have by him, but, he makes it work, and he always does.

I'm not sure anyone but Boozoo could pull it off."
