There was no holding back with Beau Jocque – his was one of the best dance bands in the land, and these are many of his greatest recordings! This retrospective collection draws on material from Beau Jocque’s four previous studio recordings for the Rounder label: Beau Jocque Boogie (1993), Pick Up on This! (1994), Gonna Take You Downtown (1996), and Check It Out, Lock It In, Crank It Up! (1998). When Beau Jocque died of a heart attack in 1999, the world of Zydeco music lost one of its most exciting talents, a man who took the traditional sounds he had learned at his father’s knee and combined them with elements of rock & roll, funk, R&B, and even reggae. ~Rick Anderson, All Music Guide. Released in October 2003, 10 tracks.
