Louisiana Saturday Night is the follow-up to the classic swamp-pop compilation Another Saturday Night (CDCH 288). Derived from material cut for Jin, La Louisianne, Hickory, Khoury's, Goldband, and other labels, this generous 26 track CD includes Rusty & Doug Kershaw's classic hit Louisiana Man, Cookie & The Cupcakes' hit version (No 47, 1959) of Mathilda, Rockin' Sidney's original version of the Fabulous Thunderbirds' hit You Ain't Nothing But Fine, Cleveland Crochet's cajun rock hit Sugar Bee and Rod Bernard & Clifton Chenier's My Jolie Blonde. Compiled by John Broven (author of the classic book on the region's music South To Louisiana), the album comes complete with sleeve notes (by Shane Bernard, Rod's son) detailing the background to the development of swamp-pop and offering a flavour of Another Saturday Night way down south.

"my aunt has this album and i borrowed it, only to burn it and never listen. then, a few months later i saw it and gave it a listen. i was expecting it to be good, but not this good. this album has a fantastic variety, great soul, honky tonk, country, and signature louisiana sounds. its like you're in the big easy. after a few listens, up to 4 of the songs were stuck in my head, it sounds stressful, but it was quite pleasant. if you want some flat out fun music and you're friends are "with it" i'm sure you'll enjoy this."
