Very good....
Megan Romer | Ithaca, NY | 12/16/2005

"Wow, Amazon, thanks so much for all the information. For people who actually enjoy knowing what they're getting, here's who plays what:

1 Ya Ya - Buckwheat Zydeco
2 Give Him Cornbread - Beau Jocque and the Zydeco Hi-Rollers
3 Your Mama Don't Know - Nathan And The Zydeco Cha Chas
4 French Rockin' Boogie - Geno Delafose
5 My Toot Toot - Rockin' Sidney
6 Hot Tamale Baby - Clifton Chenier
7 Turning Point - Buckwheat Zydeco
8 Uncle Bud - Boozoo Chavis & the Magic Sounds
9 Broken Hearted - Zydeco Force
10 Follow Me Chicken - Nathan And The Zydeco Cha Chas

Now that you can see who plays what, any zydeco fan should be able to comfortably identify all of these artists, and see that, while the songs are not NECESSARILY zydeco "hits", the artists are all zydeco stars. Other than the sad exclusion of Keith Frank, this is a pretty excellent album for its price."
Unbeatable for the price.

"When I saw the low price on this CD, I wasn't sure if the quality would be great. Turns out "Zydeco's Greatest Hits" is definitely danceable. A good mix of some of zydeco's masters, including Boozoo Chavis and Nathan & the Cha-Chas. I only wish it had some Rosie Ledet as well. The sound quality is good."
Good But Not Great

"This is an enjoyable CD, but I strongly recommend you purchase Putamayo's ZYDECO instead. It contains some greats like Geno Dalfose's "Bye Bye Mon Neg" and the Creole Zydoco Farmers' "Creole Farmers Stomp," which you won't be able to SIT and listen to. It also has Queen Ida's "My Girl Josephine," which is a classic.

Zydeco's Greatest Hits does contain some good, standard cuts like Buckwheat Zydeco's "Ya Ya," and another cut of theirs,"Turning Point," which is great. I also like BooZoo Chavis' "Uncle Bud." For the most part, though, the Putamayo disk will keep you hopping.

You may also enjoy Putamayo's LOUISIANA GUMBO which contains a variety of cajun, southern rock, and zydeco."
