from the original LP liner notes…

From the moss-covered Evangeline Oaks to the winding picturesque bayous… the incomparable complacence of Cajun life paces forward with the traditions and customs of yesteryear. And perhaps the most distinct characteristic still prevalent today is Cajun music. It remains as romantic and creative as ever, blended with a variety of the past and a version of the new concept. Historically, Cajun music was handed down from generation to generation. A very important favor contributing to the widespread acceptance of Cajun music was expressed in the famous “Fais-Do-Do.” Actually this was a weekly dance where entire family groups would meet a a particular designated place. The “Fais-Do-Do” fulfilled the entertainment and social needs of the populace and was faithfully attended by all! Much remains to be expressed about Cajun music, and as time progresses and our way of life will change. Cajun classics will always remain delightfully rich with those unique qualities that only the French can produce. This album represents a collection of some of the most popular Cajun hits, especially arranged to give you a diversified performance. Relive the joyous festivities and enjoy the “Fais-Do-Do!”

Originally released on LP in 1963, for the very first time on CD!
