20 Best of Swamp Pop from Louisiana
Release date:

Swamp Pop, going down memory lane. Indigenous to South Louisiana, this music is marked by highly emotional, plaintive vocals, simple, unaffected lyrics backed by a honky-tonk piano, bellowing sax sections and a strong R&B backbeat. Upbeat pieces often possess the bouncy rhythms of Cajun and Creole two-steps. Slow melancholic ballads exhibit the heart-broken ‘what’s-the-use-of-living’ laments common to many Cajun and black Creole compositions. Info about the groups and pieces.
