Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
Another outstanding Chenier disc on Arhoolie, this collection has as its centerpiece a session that zydeco accordion player Chenier did in 1973 with guitarist Elvin Bishop ("Fooled Around and Fell in Love") and his piano player Steve Miller (not the Steve Miller). This set of Chenier originals has a distinctly blues rock edge and includes many tunes that were mainstays in Chenier's live shows, like "The Hucklebuck" and "Zydeco Cha Cha." This collection finishes with three cuts from a 1971 KSAN radio broadcast and one remake of Chenier's drunken ode to love "I'm a Hog for You" from another 1971 San Francisco recording session. Yet another example of why he was truly "The King of Zydeco." --Robert Baird
 

CD Reviews

OUT WEST WITH THE KING OF ZYDECO
Paul J. Broussard Jr. | Youngsville, La. USA | 09/15/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"THIS CD IS VERY GOOD, FEATURING THE ORIGINAL RED HOT LOUISIANA BAND, AND STEVE MILLER ON PIANO, AND ELVIN BISHOP ON GUITAR AS ADDITIONS!HE STARTS OF WITH THE BLUES WITH, I'M ON THE WONDER' AND HAS A FEW EXTRAS ON END OF THE CD. HE IS ALWAYS SO PERFECT IN SINGING ENGLISH OR CREOLE FRENCH, WHICH MAKES HIM MORE SPECIAL!THIS IS A GREAT CD TO ADD TO YOUR COLLECTION, AND YOU CAN NOTICE THE PIANO PLAYING OF STEVE MILLER AND GUITAR PLAYING OF ELVIN BISHOP, NOT TAKING AWAY FROM THE RED HOT BAND, BUT ADDING JUST A LITTLE MORE. JUST ANOTHER GREAT CD BY CLIFTON AND HIS BAND!!!"
