AllMusic Review by

Born in the late '50s and early '60s in south Louisiana and nearby southeast Texas, swamp pop was initially forged by teenaged Creoles and Cajuns who mixed traditional Louisiana styles with R&B, country, honky tonk, New Orleans rhythms, and a dose of nascent rock & roll, and it continues to be popular in the region to date. This is the second in a five-volume series chronicling this fun, fascinating, and unique genre.
