Someone requested more Accordion music.

No really, this time a couple of people did! So here's another Rough Guide compilation. This one covers traditional Cajun music (Wiki Cajun) to some Bluesy sounding Zydeco. (Wiki Zydeco)
The AMG Review griped a little about the exclusion of Beau Jocque on this compilation so as a special bonus, I've included a Beau Jocque song, "Nonc Adam" that was on another compilation I had. Take that Mr. AMG!
California Cajun Orchestra? BLASPHEMOUS!

Track List,
1 One Step at a Time Clifton Chenier
2 Zydeco Boogaloo Buckwheat Zydeco
3 Balfa Waltz David Doucet
4 La 'Tit Cord (The Little String) Newman, Jimmy C.
5 La Misère M'a Fait Brailler John Delafose and the Eunice Playboys
6 Rolling Pin Beausoleil
7 Grande Bosco Eddie LeJeune
8 Bayou Pon Pon Michael Doucet
9 Two Step d'Amédé Savoy-Doucet Cajun Band
10 Disco et Fais Do-Do Bruce Daigrepont
11 Kolinda Beausoleil
12 Slow Horses and Fast Women Nathan & The Zydeco Cha Chas
13 La Pointe aux Pins Steve Riley
14 Fiddle Stomp Read Wallace Cheese
15 Jolie, Petite Blonde Nathan Abshire
16 Chico Two-Step California Cajun Orchestra
17 J'Etais au Bal Jo-El Sonnier
18 Let the Good Times Roll Buckwheat Zydeco

oooh I love the turbo-sound of those small accardians. thanx for this one escape goat!
I have about 20-30 cajun & zydeco LP/CD's and when I started my blog I posted michael doucet's beausoleil "cajun conga" but only a few people downloaded. so I stopped posting acc.-music.
think a special blog for those exotic styles could make an effort.... mais mes connaissances de la langue française sont mauvaises (this is from a language translator!)..... but it's an idea to think about....

Thanks Mr. Pony. I
consider a post from you as high praise.
I just try to post things I think are unusual and interesting that I find at the library. The Comments are nice and it's also nice that a few people have downloaded the stuff I've put up, I'm trying to avoid, "Main Stream" types of stuff and only appeal to people interested in Music as Music and not a popularity contest, but that's just me.
P.S. I do believe a well maintained and varied Accordion music site would eventually do pretty well.

Thank you very much. In my opinion, it gets no better than Cajun music!

You're welcome.
Your opinion is valued long it coincides with mine.
