Product Description:

Personnel includes: Clifton Chenier (vocals, accordion); C.J. Chenier (saxophone).
Recorded live at Grant Street, Lafayette, Louisiana on April 28, 1981. Includes liner notes by Chris Strachwitz.
Clifton Chenier recorded this 73-minute performance in Lafayette, LA, on April 28, 1981, backed by the Red Hot Louisiana Band. That group featured Cleveland Chenier on rub board, C.J. Chenier on alto sax, and Robert Peter on drums; oddly, the guitar and bass players for this specific gig remain unidentified. No surprises here -- just a good energetic set by the king of zydeco, with a full-sounding band and pretty good fidelity. As usual, he varied the set between traditional-sounding zydeco and numbers with a heavier soul and blues flavor (on which the saxophone comes much more to the fore), including a cover of the old Chuck Willis hit "What Am I Living For." ~ Richie Unterberger
