Review by Adam Greenberg

A relatively basic album of party-based zydeco from the heir apparent to the throne after the death of Clifton Chenier. The nice thing about Buckwheat Zydeco's (Stanley Dural's) albums is the broader diversity that he uses as far as the compositions are concerned. Along with his own compositions on this album are bits from Booker T ("Time Is Tight"), the Blasters ("Marie Marie"), and Bob Dylan ("On a Night Like This"). To accompany his own band, a portion of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band fills in on horns throughout the album, much to the credit of the finished sound. The album is jumping, just the way it's supposed to. This is certainly one of Buckwheat's best albums, right in with Where There's Smoke, There's Fire. Pick it up for a high energy album of Louisiana's party music.
