AllMusic Review by

This release from the great reissue label Vàrese Sarabande, Absolutely the Best of Cajun and Zydeco, Vol. 2, covers a wide range of the music of Louisiana. Artists like Terrance Simien, Boozoo Chavis, Buckwheat Zydeco, Clifton Chenier, Zachary Richard, Rockin' Dopsie and Beau Jocque make spirited appearances on zydeco classics like "Jolie Blond," "Lafayette Two-Step," and "A Ma Maison." The collection is an excellent place to start investigating this vibrant musical style, and also a great way for zydeco aficionados to have many of their favorites in one place. [Also available from Vàrese is the first volume in this series Absolutely the Best of Cajun and Zydeco and the superior two-fer CD Absolutely the Best of Cajun and Zydeco, Vol. 1 & 2.]
