  1. Documents of a flourishing below-the-radar culture, often involving older musicians who won't be around much longer, they are archival records as well as entertainments.
  2. Unpolished and clearly made on a low budget, the results seem a little like a home video by someone who spent an especially cool summer vacation.

    A joyful celebration of Louisiana music in all its permutations.
  4. Practitioners of Cajun, Creole, and zydeco music strut their stuff. So do the players of a style new to me but instantly beloved: I'm speaking of swamp pop.
  5. 70
    The performances are uneven, but the spirit never flags.

    A light, entertaining musical travelogue down the highways and byways of the Pelican State: taping performances, interviewing a few legends and dropping in on various musicologists for a little historical perspective.
