Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
The Balfa Brothers were the real deal way back before Paul Prudhomme made Cajun chic. On this 1975 set, the double violins of brothers Will and Dewey dominate this excellent collection of traditional tunes, with Tony and Rodney adding the guitars and triangle, and a minimal amount of accordion from Dewey appearing here and there. You get your two-steps, you get your waltzes, you get some superb romantic ballads where Dewey really gets to strut his vocal stuff. Classics like "La Valse Du Port Arthur" and "Rosina" are offered, as well as a stylish version of "Casey Jones." If you have been hungry for a real-deal Cajun musical meal, then this session is for you. It's a relaxed, low-key affair with lots of good vibes and top-flight playing. --Louis Gibson
