Rhythm ‘n’ Bluesin’ By The Bayou - Livin' Lovin' and Lyin' CD
From New Orleans in the east to Lake Charles in the west, Rhythm ’n’ Blues not only entertained the black population of South Louisiana filling the juke joints along Route 90, it also inspired a whole generation of young white performers influencing their music into forming what would become swamp pop – a sound which features here in embryonic form.
We return to the bayou for a sixth helping of downhome R&B, sourced from the finest indie labels found in Louisiana and East Texas.
Lesser-heard gems and rare alternate versions rub shoulders with previously unreleased recordings by genre notables Cookie & the Cupcakes, Van Preston and Elizabeth, to name but three.
Featured labels include Ron, Feature, Excello, Goldband, Hollywood, Rocko and Flip, while just under half of the 28 tracks are previously unreleased.
