This 1994 recording captures Chavis and his band, the Magic Sounds, in full cry in front of a hometown crowd in Lake Charles, Louisiana. One song runs into another and the groove stays constant throughout, as if Boozoo gains strength from the dancers. This is as real as zydeco gets, and a better modern-day representative would be hard to find. Put your dancing shoes on.
Best Live Zydeco Recording You'll Find
Zydeco should really be seen live to appreciate it. Studio CD's are fine but not the same. It's hard to really find a good live CD. A friend from New Orleans who is the guru of Louisiana music turned me on to this saying it's the best live CD he's heard. He's right. Best part is he talks to the crowd. At point he says "there a caddy outside, you left your lights on" Classic. Buy it.
