Swamp Pop By The Bayou - Let's Get Together Tonight Various Artists (By the Bayou)


Louisiana/New Orleans
Ace Records
Catalogue Id:
CDCHD 1499

There are three music genres native to the South Louisiana/SE Texas area: Cajun, zydeco and swamp pop. Instantly recognisable, this is music that resonates with the steamy heat of the swamps and bayous, and with the spicy food and goodtime feel of the people and the area.
This is the third volume in our “By The Bayou” series to feature swamp pop – a term that did not exist when the tracks on the CD were recorded. Ville Platte, the home of Floyd Soileau’s stable of labels, now proudly calls itself the Swamp Pop Capital Of The World.
Ian Saddler’s latest compilation contains the tried-and-tested mixture of hits and rarities, plus three previously unreleased nuggets. The CD features a young Johnny Winter, an uncle of Dolly Parton and some rare early James Burton guitar picking.
