Boppin By The Bayou Again

A second dip into the gumbo that was South Louisiana s take on rock n roll in the 50s and early 60s a spicy mix of rockabilly and southern rockers heavily influenced by the sounds of R&B wafting from New Orleans and a lifetime of Cajun music. Following the success of Ace's first CD, Ace are pleased to bring you another compilation full of the obscure and previously unissued. 12 of the 28 tracks are previously unissued due our unique access to the tapes of the late J. D. Miller, the late Eddie Shuler and the good friend Floyd Soileau. With this series of CDs Ace are following in the footsteps and, thanks to improved digital transfer techniques, building on the pioneering work of John Broven and of Bruce Bastin of Flyright Records in capturing the raw energy of a music form peculiar to a relatively small, but hugely influential, area of the United States of America. For those of you who are also who are also bitten by the bug of rockin blues and R&B from South Louisiana, keep watch for the sister series featuring those genres, the first of which Rhythm n Bluesin By The Bayou is slated for release next month.
