I bought this CD because I'd heard the superb, fast Cajun/blues/country title track on another CD. While the rest of the CD is generically nice it is more straight, not spectacular, country than the nice mix of the first track.

Promised Land
Disappointing. Had heard the track Promised Land. Had hoped the CD would contain more tracks with a Cajun/Zydeco feel. Enjoy Johnnie Allan OK but more when he does his Louisana swamp stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars SWAMP POP--Not Cajun 3 Feb. 2004
By Ken Fontenot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Don't be misled by the editorial review of this album. This isn't Cajun music. Granted, there are obvious Cajun influences throughout this disc, but this is Swamp Pop. If you're not from Louisiana, you may not have heard of this type of music. Johnnie Allan is a "god" in Swamp Pop terms. This music leans heavily toward 50's rock and country twang, but Cajun music is also a big influence.
I grew up listening to the likes of Johnnie Allan, Warren Storm and Rod Bernard. My father is a huge fan of Swamp Pop, as he should be. He grew up with this stuff. It is totally unique to Louisiana. When I found my father's collection of Swamp Pop, I immediately fell in love. If you ever get the chance to see any of these guys live, take it.
The songs here may not sound familiar to many people, but trust me when I say that you are in for a unique surprise. "The Promised Land" is a Chuck Berry tune that Allan rocks right on through. One of my personal favorites, "South To Louisiana" is a take on "North To Alaska" by Johnny Horton. "Let's Do It" is another swamp rocker worthy of listening to. "You Got Me Whistling," "Graduation Night," "Please Help Me I'm Falling" and "Your Picture" are instant Johnnie Allan classics.
No other song on this compilation is bad. Everything contained here is just good ol' fashioned rock n' roll with a Cajun twist. Enjoy this album with friends and spread the word about Louisiana's great Swamp Pop legends.
