I've seen Buckwheat perform live at the NJ Crawfish Festival a number of times. His energy, crowd interaction, and old-fashioned Louisiana entertainment style make his live performances wonderfully refreshing and down-to-earth. This CD captures all these great attributes. From his comments to the crowd ("Somebody Scream!" and "A Tois", for example), to the traditional way his band starts most of the tracks, you really feel the down-home, Lafayette, LA warmth. The jams on all songs are great, and would be excellent background music for any upbeat party. The recording quality is crystal-clear. My only complaint would be that the horn section, in some of cuts, is not always as highlighted as in some studio versions of the same songs. The liner notes help complete the listener's journey to Buckewheat's home, and El Sid O's club, the venue for the recordings.
