Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
Once billed as "the future of zydeco," Terrance Simien is the player who introduced unpredictability and limitless energy into the genre. Like all the leading players of this jumpy, good-time south Louisiana music, Terrance plays accordion. Unlike many zydeco leaders, however, Simien is an excellent singer and a frenetic performer. Here on his debut album, he blends flavorful originals like "Zydeco Zambada" and the title cut with a couple of unlikely covers: Peter Tosh's "Stop the Train" and A. P. Carter's country standard, "Will the Circle Be Unbroken." Overall, a high-octane breed of an already energetic music. --Robert Baird

Best zydeco record of the 90's..
11/26/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Terrance is a personal friend of mine and I've listened to this recording hundreds of times and have never tired of it. It is the perfect party record and is a great choice for the zydeco novice, then go catch his live show. Unbelievable."
Rock the house and buy this CD!!!!

"The first time I saw Terrance and the boys they had just put out this CD. They would come and play twice a year at a little bar here in our town and we would actually "ROCK THE HOUSE" Still cannot believe that the floor never fell in! It is a great album and a must have for anyone who loves Zydeco or a great dance album. It will make you get up and move and every song on the CD is great. Add this one to your collection today!"
