What the world had been waiting for? Maybe not the world, but me anyway, and, judging by the positive reviews, quite a few others. I first tuned in to this style of music way back in 1975 via the purchase of "The Other Song of the South: Louisiana Rock’n’Roll", a 16 track LP lovingly put together by Bill Millar, which introduced me to the likes of Opelousas hero Rod Bernard, the amazing Cookie & the Cupcakes, Jivin' Gene from Port Arthur and more. Since then, in spite of valiant efforts from Ace Records and the late Charlie Gillett, we've never had a definitive set of swamp pop goodies compiled on CD. Up to now, or up to 2012 when this set was released, that is.

Almost all the BIG records are here: Cookie & the Cupcakes with "Mathilda", the Guitar Gable/King Karl version of "This should go on forever", Jimmy Clanton's "Just a dream", Joe Barry's "I'm a fool to care", Jivin' Gene's "Breaking up is hard to do", Phil Phillips' immortal "Sea of love" and the title track (from Bobby Charles) of course. These are all classics of the genre. If you think you know rock'n'roll but you don't know these then give them a listen.

The name Swamp Pop is a recent one for what was regional music of Louisiana at the time.Mainly the songs are ballads and the artists were both black and white showing there is no racial prejudice in the music business
The only 2 chart toppers were Phil Philips & the Twilighters' Sea of Love and Dale & Grace's I'm Leaving it All Up To You (a revival of a flop single by Don & Dewey) and even today Swamp Pop is in a specialised area like Cajun or Zydeco to which its related
There have been many sporadic examples of Swamp Pop on the Hot 100 the most consistent being Jimmy Clanton who combined high school pop with the music and other lower entries from Warren Storm and Joe Barry which charted in the U K where Swamp Pop had never meant much.
Like Dale & Grace and Jimmy Clanton,Joe Barry made it to No 49 for a week proving that Swamp Pop was nearly non existent in the U K where Phil Philip's Sea Of Love would have meant nothing as a song if Marty Wilde had never covered it.Yet this never happenned for Vince Eager who covered Rod Bernard's cover of This Should Go On Forever
While Freddy Fender charted high in both pop and country in the States and all his albums were issued here there were few takers
Another Swamp Pop act not mentioned in the sleeve notes was Sunny & the Sunliners who made the top 20 in the States in 1963
Freddie Fender was the next to top the U S charts and even cut an album called Swamp Pop reviving many of the songs from the 60s though he was actually a Texan via Mexico where he cut his first singles in their language .
A cod Cajun single topping the U K charts was via Shakin' Stevens and Oh Julie (not the Crescendos song)Stevens also hit with a revival of John Fred's Shirley which has never been issued here.

Swamp Pop started officially in 1955 but didn't have a name yet. This double disc has songs from 1955 to 1961 with the bulk in 1958-59.
Most of the artist were probably superstars in the five parishes that surrounded theirs. Some were lucky enough to be know in New Orleans or the neighbouring states of Texas or Mississippi.
A few(and only a few) went nationwide with one or two singles.
Clearly Swamp Pop was a local phenomenon.

Out of the 65 tracks here you will surely know a couple of names: Bobby Charles, Phil Phillips, Jimmy Clanton, Johnnie Allen, John Fred & his Playboy Band.
But! Do names like Guitar Jr, Jivin'Gene, Glenn Wells & the Blends,T.K.Hulin or Gabe Dean ring a bell? There's many more of these unknowns on these two discs.

The Music? There's lots of slows here but not all.
Most are in waltz time and that was de rigeur at the time. Lyrically most themes are about lost love, falling in love, betrayal...you get the picture.

This compilation covers only six years and a small part of the U.S.A.
But it's the same time where Bill Haley, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis and Roy Orbison became household names.

The artists on Swamp Pop in fact deserved the same stardom. The music on these two discs is, in fact, just as good.

You can't leave this in the racks as it's under seven pounds.

You know what to do, don't you?
