Cajun Classics: Kings Of Cajun At Their Very Best

Cajun Classics: Kings Of Cajun At Their Very Best Lowest new price: $3.96
Lowest used price: $3.95

This new mid-price set is in effect a Very Best of Cajun Classics, and is drawn mainly from the two now-deleted volumes that were among our best sellers (in any genre) during the 1990s. Those releases hit the button just as Cajun music was enjoying a popularity in the UK that was akin to the calypso, trad jazz and R&B booms of years gone by.

Suddenly, young musicians were taking up the accordion and fiddle; new bands with cute Louisiana names were springing up; dance schools were adding the Cajun two-step and waltz to their curricula; the Cajun bookshelf started groaning; and Cajun CDs were selling like pop records. Best of all, authentic Cajun musicians started visiting the British shores, notably D L Menard, Eddie LeJeune, Balfa Toujours and Beausoleil.

Now, as it always does, Cajun music has found its own level on the musical barometer. With this continued interest, we needed to fill the gaping hole in our catalogue brought about by the withdrawal of the original Cajun Classics CDs (due to expiry of licenses).

This revamped and revitalized Cajun Classics is just that, classic Cajun artists performing classic Cajun songs. So you will hear those accordion masters Nathan Abshire and Iry LeJeune - respectively the 'Muddy Waters' and 'Robert Johnson' of Cajun music. Other Kings of Cajun playing the 'squeezebox' are Austin Pitre, Belton Richard, Aldus Roger and Lawrence Walker. As for the Cajun fiddle players, they come no better than Dewey Balfa, Doc Guidry and Michael Doucet (of current Cajun top act Beausoleil).

Among the favorite songs are Jolie Blon, The Back Door, Pine Grove Blues and Hippy-Ti-Yo. Totally new additions to the package include Jimmy 'C' Newman's big 1970s hit Lache Pas La Patate and the Cajun Trio's rollicking version of Joseph Falcon's Le Tortillage - better known as Keep A Knocking.

In testimony, Floyd Soileau (the esteemed head of Swallow Records, which provides the bulk of the tracks) says the compilation is 'terrific'. For our part, we are certain this CD will be seen as the classic Cajun Classics - for the committed fan and for the casual buyer.

-John Broven (Compiler, and author of South to Louisiana: The Music of the Cajun Bayous)

James Brown's Original Funky Divas

James Brown's Original Funky Divas Lowest new price: $7.25
Lowest used price: $6.00

James Brown's Original Funky Divas is THE definitive collection; every track (except 2 rarities) produced by James Brown and played by the James Brown Band or the mighty J.B.'s. Two incredible CDs containing 46 tracks of slammin' funk and classic R&B featuring Bea Ford, Yvonne Fair, Tammy Montgomery, Anna King, Elsie Mae, the Jewels, Vicki Anderson, Marva Whitney, Lyn Collins, Martha High, Kay Robinson and Shirley Jean & the Relations.

This long-overdue collection shines a light on the lesser-known side of James Brown's musical empire: the ladies. And what ladies--seriously soulful songbirds like Lyn Collins ("The Female Preacher"), Vicki Anderson and Yvonne Fair, bawdy blues shouter Elsie Mae ("T.V. Mama"), and the unheralded Marva Whitney, who unleashes the hip-hop sample staple "Unwind Yourself." There are also two tracks from a young singer named Tammy Montgomery, who after leaving Brown's tutelage would sign with Motown and emerge as Tammi Terrell. From big hits like Collins's "Think (About It)" to obscure singles such as Elsie Mae's "Do You Really Want to Rescue Me, Part 1" (an answer to Fontella Bass's "Rescue Me"), this two-CD anthology is sheer R&B heaven and essential for fans of gritty, hip-shaking, finger-wagging, "You better think, boy" anthems. --Amy Linden

The Very Best of Aretha Franklin: The 60's

The Very Best of Aretha Franklin: The 60's Lowest new price: $2.95
Lowest used price: $0.42
Brand: Franklin Machine Products
Model: 2020195

Aretha's biggest Atlantic hits on two midline-priced volumes. Volume 1 is devoted to her classic '60s hits.

Certified Platinum by the RIAA. (11/01)

This 16-track disc and its companion piece (Volume 2) do a great job of recapitulating Aretha's singles career at Atlantic. Some of the most compelling music ever recorded, these sides bring forth the best of one of the great singers. Whether all but rewriting "Respect" ("That girl stole my song," an admiring Otis Redding said) or barely masking the pain behind "Call Me," she tells some of the truest stories around. And what a piano player. --Rickey Wright
