The Classic Louisiana Recordings, Cajun & Creole Music: A series devoted to the recordings by Alan Lomax and John Lomax in Louisiana in the 1930s and 1980s. 'The Lomaxes recorded a whole different side of music in South Louisiana - unaccompanied ballad singers and solo instrumentalists. They recorded styles that were old then, as opposed to styles that were only popular then -- thus deepening our understanding of the roots of Cajun music and its Creole cousin, zydeco, far beyond anything we had known before.' --Janet McConnaughey, Associated Press 'Contemporary Cajun and Creole musicians have proved right the Lomaxes' desire to preserve America's oldest traditional music for future generations -- they are now retooling and recycling this very material and turning it into brand new-old songs. The release of this expanded CD version will keep refueling this important creative process.' --Barry Jean Ancelet Includes Alan Lomax's first Cantometric analysis of a single regional tradition.
