While it doesn't dig very deep, Zydeco Party is a serviceable sampler plate of Cajun sounds and grooves, featuring many of the music's biggest names. Clifton Chenier, Boozo Chavis, Buckwheat Zydeco, and button accordion master Rockin' Dopsie all contribute strong material; other standouts include the fun Rockin' Sidney cut "My Toot Toot," as well as Nathan & the Zydeco Cha Chas' bluesy "Your Mama Don't Know." Aficionados won't find anything new here, but for the casual listener, Zydeco Party certainly lives up to its billing.
