AllMusic Review by

Released to coincide with their 25th Anniversary, the 2007 compilation from French Guiana/West Indies band La Compagnie Creole gathers some of the biggest feel-good hits from their '80s heyday. Largely produced by Daniel Vangarde, its 17 Caribbean rhythm-led French language tracks include songs from their 1983 debut, Viva Le Douanier Rousseau ("Dans le Jumbo"), and their subsequent studio albums, including "Ca Fait Rire Les Oiseaux," a track now annually played at Quebec Francophone New Year celebrations.
