AllMusic Review by

Starbucks has been doing these themed compilations for a while now and they’re usually pretty interesting playlists. This one, which celebrates Mardi Gras, is a case in point, with classic tracks like the Dixie Cups' take on “Iko Iko,” Fats Domino's “When the Saints Go Marching In,” James Booker's “Make a Better World,” and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band's “Down by the Riverside.” Throw in Louis Armstrong & His Hot Five's rousing “West End Blues” and suddenly you’re drinking that coffee on Bourbon Street.
