"From the very moment when you hit the "play" button, you will be transported deep to the land where cypress trees grow, music is played both night and day, and where time passes by like a pleasant daydream. Billie and Dede Pierce, masters of the old-time New Orleans dixieland/jazz/blues sound, permanently fixed their position in the city's musical history with "Blues and Tonks From the Delta."
Listening to the tracks on this excellent disc, you are hearing the pure, unadulterated sounds of what News Orleans is all about. There are no slick, studio tricks, no over-production, and no strained and tired notes, there is simply an old-time street parade coming through your speakers. Billie's delightful piano playing and vocals, and Dede's fantastic cornet playing will take you down the Mississippi on to New Orleans! This is a must have for any fan of Dixieland, blues, jazz, or just plain good music."
