Product Description
Product Details

  • Personnel: Octa Clark (vocals, accordion); Michael Doucet (guitar); Hector Duhon (fiddle).
  • Recorded at Michael Doucer's, Lafayette, Lousiana. Includes liner notes by Chris Strachwitz.
  • Personnel: Hector Duhon (fiddle); Octa Clark (accordion).
  • Editor: Chris Strachwitz.
  • A self-descriptive album title if there ever was one, as Octa Clark, Hector Duhon, and Michael Doucet go through a standard Cajun repertoire that gets into polkas, dance tunes, waltzes, and the (overdone) classic "Jolie Blonde," with Clark singing in French. It's well-done traditional Cajun music with that identifiably regional catch-cry in Clark's vocals, which sound as though they belong to a man a good deal younger (Clark was in his mid-sixties at the time of this recording). However, variety or distinctiveness that would set this apart from many other Cajun recordings of this type are absent. The CD reissue adds four additional songs not on the original LP release, recorded on the same day as the other tracks were. ~ Richie Unterberger
Professional Reviews
Dirty Linen (4-5/00, p.77) - "...A reissue of some of the nicest and enduring fiddle and accordion work you can hope to hear....it's a terrific glimpse of the age-old Cajun sound played the way it was supposed to be heard."
