Clifton Chenier, backsleeve info

It is not blues, born in the late twenties, squeezebox,
rubboard and French lyrics, we’re talking of Zydeco. The
king of zydeco is Clifton Chenier, he shaped the sound
into this great party music, very happy and irresistible.

    Really fantastic music. Been reading about him in various Louisiana-based novels (James Lee Burke and others), and this is the first chance I got of listening to him. Many, many thanks!
