Dans La Louisianne - King Of Cajun Music CD
Here is the long awaited CD release of Cajun icon Vin Bruce's very first recordings for Columbia Records, spotlighting a fascinating time in the and rise of Cajun music.
Hank Williams was so endeared to Vin Bruce's music that he invited him to play his public wedding ceremony at New Orleans' Municipal Auditorium.
These Columbia sides represent the first time a Cajun artist was accompanied by Nashville's legendary session players. Among the highlights are Grady Martin multi-tasking on guitar, mandolin and fiddle, Owen Bradley on piano, and Chet Atkins, Jack Shook and Tommy Jackson on guitars
For the first time ever, these groundbreaking sides are brought together with excellent sound quality, including four never previously released tracks.
Included are the hit Dans la Louisianne, the Hillbilly Blues of My Mama Said, and the unreleased Cajun bopper Le Delece, featuring Chet Atkins' stellar proto-rockabilly guitar picking.
