Fiddle player extraordinaire Doug Kershaw is featured with his brother Rusty on these Cajun-drenched country and rockabilly songs recorded in the early '60s for the Hickory label. Before Doug went on to mainstream success as the Ragin' Cajun in the '70s, he and brother Rusty recorded numerous regional records, some of which gained national attention. Among the 11 tracks included here are "Diggy Diggy Lo," "Cajun Joe (Bully of the Bayou)," and the country standard "Louisiana Man," which has been covered through the years by a host of artists such as Jerry Lee Lewis, Rick Nelson, the Flying Burrito Brothers, Dave Edmunds, and Charley Pride. Highly recommended.
