This is the most essential record for anyone interested in Cajun music. Iry's songs are still standards for any musician in Lousiana, and when you travel there you'll hear them all the time. Piercing, crying vocals, driving accordion - it's all there, though fiddle fans might have liked him to feature that instrument more. Not your 21st century production values (at least one of the tracks was recorded on a tape recorder on Iry's kitchen table), but when the music's this good, who cares?

Cajun Music's Finest Accordion Player 5 Jan. 2003
By David Roy - Published on
Format: Audio CD
You can look for a thousand years but you'll never find a more technically adept accordionist than Iry LeJeune. I'll cut right to the chase: despite the raw, old-time sound of his recordings, you could never discount the technical mastery of this true Cajun legend. Before or since, there is no accordionist that even comes close to the mastery of the instrument as does Iry. Lawrence Walker and Aldus Roger were both very good accordion players but they fall indescribably short of the genius of Iry. His double stops, trills and other adornments have never since his time been attempted, much less approximated. If you buy only one Cajun CD in your lifetime, this should be the one you buy.

The real stuff 12 May 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
If you are looking for something different than all the rest,try this cd. This is what traditional cajun music comes is. Iry brings back the old tunes of his forefathers-Amede Ardoin and his uncle Angelas LeJeune and gives them life for generations to come. If you are looking for something other than the new style, try this cd. This is where it all began.

Cajun Music Where It Began 10 Mar. 2007
By G. Meranto - Published on
Format: Audio CD
A man who only made hits as long as he made music. This CD is made of old music recorded before cassettes were even used. The quality isn't the best because of this but Iry's scratchy voice makes it's way into you and you just can't get enough. Some of these recordings are so detrimental to cajun music today. Amede Armoire and Iry Lejeune....Cajun music pioneers. If you don't have this CD then your missing out on a lot of heritage, talent and history. And of course good music.

Introducing The Great Iry LeJeune... 2 April 2009
By R. Webb - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Iry LeJeune, greatest Cajun musician of all time? there's not a barroom in the Acadian to this day that doesn't at least have one song on the jukebox selection featuring the legendary singer/accordionist. LeJeune helped define Cajun music and bring back the roots and the accordion to the genre that had disappeared for awhile, Cajun music without accordion is like Buck Owens without steel guitar. Iry LeJeune took the liberty of doing his own thing, evident in this collection, great recordings from the forties. Possessed with intense powerful vocals, and wild definitive accordion licks, Iry spellbounds his audience, "I'm here to entertain you whether you like it or not". LeJeune never lets up on these recordings, featuring songs - "Evangeline Special", "Waltz Of The Mulberry Limb", "Grande Nuit Especial", "Calcasieu Waltz", "Lacassine Special". These are the 25 original clean ACE recordings without the bass overdubs and the audio does has a few imperfections - nothing to distract the listener or this energized Cajun artist at work. Iry LeJeune the greatest ? - this recording just might tell all, encore! Also check out The Balfa Brothers, traditional cajun music vol.1,vol.2.

You can't argue with a legend 14 Nov. 2009
By malarz - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Once you get past the dated recording quality (and believe me when I say this has been cleaned up and is far superior to the original lp) and listen carefully you can hear just what a great accordionist he is and what a soulful singer. Download this cd into your personal listening device, put on a pair of quality headphones and enjoy.
