Product Notes

EU three CD collection of classic and rare Cajun recordings made by legendary record producer J.D. Miller in the 1940s and '50s. It took a long time to figure out exactly how many he made and then it took even longer to find them and painstakingly restore the sound! From 1946 to 1959, J.D. Miller released all forms of French language records, from the beautiful fiddle and guitar records of Oran 'Doc' Guidry and Leroy 'Happy Fats' Leblanc to the raucous recordings of Robert Bertrand and the Lake Charles Playboys. Many very rare recordings are reissued here for the first time, and those include the first recordings of Jimmy Newman. Also included are such rarities as 'War Widow Waltz' by Laura Broussard, Terry Clement's original version of 'Diggy Liggy Lo;, and Papa Cairo's 'Big Texas', the song that Hank Williams adapted into the one Cajun song everyone knows, 'Jambalaya'.
