Zydeco is a form of American roots or folk music. It evolved in southwest Louisiana in the early 19th century from forms of "la la" Creole music. The rural black Creoles of southwest Louisiana and southeast Texas still sing in Louisiana Creole French. Usually fast tempo and dominated by the button or piano accordion and a form of a washboard known as a "rub-board," "scrub-board," "wash-board," or frottoir, zydeco music was originally created at house dances, where families and friends gathered for socializing.

Clifton Chenier was to zydeco what Elvis Presley was to rockabilly, only more so — the genre's founding father and tireless ambassador. Rhino has done an admirable job of collecting the accordionist's important work for this two-disc, 40-track set, harking back to a wonderfully chaotic "Louisiana Stomp" that he waxed in Lake Charles, Louisiana in 1954 for J.R. Fullbright's tiny Elko label. Whether you're in the market for one zydeco collection to summarize the entire genre or ready to delve deeply into the legacy of the idiom's pioneer, this is precisely where to begin.
