AllMusic Review by

Bayou Deluxe: The Best of Michael Doucet & Beausoleil collects 17 tracks from the group's 10 albums, adding one previously unreleased cut. Wisely, the collection is sequenced as a live set would be, instead of being a slave to chronological order. The result is a lively, exciting romp through Doucet's past that entertains while it illuminates. In other words, it's not only an ideal retrospective, it is arguably Doucet and Beausoleil's finest album.
