This is a satisfying collection of Chenier's different styles, from uptempo dance numbers to slower blues. It's amusing hearing a Muddy Waters' riff on the accordion (one number sounds like "Sail On, My Little Honeybee")or a vocal that could have come off a Lightnin' Hopkins album (Hopkins was married to Chenier's cousin, I think). But his blues aren't his best feature; it's the infectious joy of dance tunes that make him special. I am mystified by the complaints over the sound (written, it appears, by the same patron at different times but unfortunately counted twice by Amazon and dragging down the rating.) The volume is quite adequate if not on head-banger level, and the fidelity perfectly clean, even on live numbers, so unless I have a different pressing (the catalogue number is the same), I'd say go ahead try this if you want a good survey of Chenier. I think it's more a 4- than 5-star album, but I want to correct the imbalance created by the improper double count of the unrealistic 1-star rating.
