AllMusic Review by

This twofer collects a pair of the Louisiana singer-songwriter and fiddler Doug Kershaw's best early-1970s albums. DOUG KERSHAW is a low-key acoustic affair, though songs like the outgoing "Play Fiddle Play" and the swamp-rock "Mama Said Yeah" both carry Kershaw's inimitable extrovert stamp. Released in 1974, MAMA KERSHAW'S BOY is more down-home, with tracks like "Swamp Dance" and "Cajun Grass" sharing an irresistible fiddle-and-accordion swing with the singalong "Mama's Got the Know How" and "Hippy Ti Yo."
