Good, but La Mistrine and En Spectacle are better

"See millepattes.com to learn about La Bottine Souriante (The Smiling Ankle Boot) and how to order their CDs. Let's hope Amazon makes all their CDs available, as Mille-Pattes charges $18 per disk. The band has ten or so CDs. Their tenth is known as "X" in Canada and "Rock & Reel" in the states. It's far from my favorite, however. Far better are "La Mistrine" and "En Spectacle" ("Live"). "En Spectacle" includes many tunes from their previous CDs, including "Chapeau", and the live versions are dynamite. I saw the band in Lafayette, LA, in April '99 and they were as good in person as on CD. A crew from PBS filmed the concert. We can hope for a broadcast in the coming months."

"I saw La Bottine Souriante in New York at Central Park Summerstage in July 1999. I haven't been this excited about a musical group in years.In ONE TUNE, they played the following musical styles-Irish, Cajun, Polka, Dixieland, big band jazz, salsa and reggae. And they did it seamlessly and it really worked. This is the most original, high energy, quality music I have heard in years.I tracked down an album (not easy) and ordered it-simply awesome. They have plenty of albums and it is virtually impossible to find them in the United States-UNLESS Amazon picks them up in a big way.Gotta go and order their new album, Rock and Reel."
Where are the C.D.s?

"I also saw La Bottine Souriante at Irish Fest this year. They had the place on their feet dancing. I researched the group and they have at least a dozen different c.d.s. Where can they be purchased? They just produced a c.d. this year but, sadly, were sold out at Irish Fest in Milwaukee. It seems that not a single music store between Michigan and Chicago can order any c.d.s more recent than 1990. Please look into carrying the c.d.s of this successful band for us."
