Classic Clifton Chenier
Bruce Kendall | Southern Pines, NC | 06/25/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Chenier performed and recorded a lot of his music in Cajun French. This is one such recording. Please do not let any language barrier put you off. This is vintage Clifton Chenier, robust, rythmic, pulsating, guaranteed to lift you off your seat and send you perambulating into the night. "Blues De Ma Negress," the second song on the CD, is classic, lilting Zydeco. You don't have to know the lyrics to understand the intent. It's pure Cajun Blues. I actually prefer the classic Cajun-French Zydeco to the "homogenized" brand. It seems purer and more authentic, even though I understand only about a quarter of the lyrics. "J'Ai Conet, C'Est Pas Ma Femme" has a particularly personal meaning for me these days. If you want to hear a down-home, Bayou version of one of the only truly indigenous brands of American Jazz left on the planet, give this recording a try."
I Don't Know Why

"I like Clifton Chenier better when I can't understand him, but I do. I can understand him the least on this album, so it's my favorite. If you like good accordian blues you can't understand, and you can't speak cajun french, then this is the CD for you."
