Jimmy C. Newman: Zydeco Begins
Mandell Matheson - mathesonandassoc | Tulsa, OK | 06/19/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Before "zydeco" there was Jimmy C. Newman. Those who enjoy Cajun sounds, real Cajun accordians and the rich mix of Cajun language and culture should know it began with Jimmy C. Newman. This album is a classic mix of Newman's mix: English, Cajun, country and western, and the toe-tapping beginnings of what became Zydeco. Newman's enchantingly slow "Basile Waltz" and the peppy sounds of "Diggy Liggy Li" make this album worth the price. Toss in the chance to hear the roots of Zydeco, and you have a double bargain."
