There's only one thing I miss about records: those big beautiful album
covers. CDs are in most every respect superior; they sound better,
they take up less room, they don't require nearly the maintenance.
Heck, they don't need flipping! But even the best CD cover art can't
compare to the detail on an album.
That's what caught my eye when I was browsing the iTMS and came upon
this disc. All those shades of brown and that old fashioned
lettering, they were enough to make me stop and listen. And I was
impressed with what I heard, although I freely admit to knowing
nothing about traditional bayou music. A little reading tells me that
others think these guys are the authentic article, both instrumentally
and vocally. But what do I care? What I know is that they don't
sound like anything else in my iPod. I can't wait to get them into my
Smart Playlist rotation.
