I waited to post to this thread until I had a chance to listen to the Buckwheat Zydeco CD I have in my digitized collection. Did that today.
I love Zydeco. I remember the first time I heard Clifton Chenier on one of those off-the-wall radio stations in the 70's. Man, I didn't know you could wail on accordion like that!
The Buckwheat Zydeco CD I have is good, but it just doesn't do that much for me, some very good, some kinda mediocre ( 1988 Taking It Home). I love the clip that was posted though. I bet he was crazy fantastic to see live.
Now that I'm in my 60's, I gotta say 68 is just way to young for this guy to go. Bon Ton Roulet!
