CD Reviews

This is my favorite Cajun CD.
11/18/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Coeur des cajuns is my favorite Cajun CD, and one of my all-time favorites of any flavor. It has both fast and slow music, and is sung in both English and Cajun French. In fact, some songs are sung in both languages. It makes you feel like you're in the back bayous of Louisiana. I can't listen to it without tapping my feet and clapping my hands."
Makes me want to break out the gumbo!
