AllMusic Review by Stacia Proefrock

Swamp Classics brings together a widely divergent collection of artists that rose out of the muck in Louisiana in the '50s and '60s. Featuring musical styles ranging from Cajun to blues to rockabilly, this album makes some strange bedfellows; most interesting is the accordion surf of "Cajun Wipe Out," the Jerry Lee Lewis-style of "Coffins Have No Pockets," and the country-swing of "Chasin' My Blues Away."
