Third Time's a Charm
Larry Greenberg | 01/19/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

""Turn up the Zydeco", the third outing for Rockin' Dopsie Jr. and the Zydeco Twisters, is the most eclectic yet for this group. Since assuming the helm of the band on the passing of his father (Zydeco legend Alton "Rockin' Dopsie" Rubin), bandleader and rubboard player David Rubin (Rockin' Dopsie Jr.) has successfully blended even more elements of contemporary r&b, jazz, and classic rock n' roll, while maintaining the infectious dance rhythms that is the hallmark of Zydeco music. High points of the CD are the band's covers of the Zydeco standards "Hot Tamale Baby" and "Zydeco Boogaloo" showcasing accordionist Anthony (Tiger Dopsie) Rubin's electric riffs. If you've been curious about zydeco but have had limited exposure, this album will serve as an excellent eye-opener - and don't be surprised if you get the urge to zydeco dance halfway through the first track."
