Dans la Lousianne
EU collection from the pioneering American musician often called 'The King of Cajun Music. ' Vin Bruce is a South Louisiana treasure of unparalleled significance. His signing to Columbia Records in the early '50s was positively historical in more ways than one. The first Cajun artist to be marketed to the widespread record buying public by a major record company, his first single, 'Dans la Louisianne' B&W 'Fille de la Ville', was sung purely in French, but, like Harry Choates' 'Jole Blon' before it, that didn't keep it from becoming a Country music sensation. Highlights include the hit 'Dans La Louisianne', songs from the pens of Bruce, Atkins, Felice and Boudleaux Bryant and Autry Inman, and the unreleased Cajun bopper 'Le Délece', featuring Chet Atkins' stellar proto-rockabilly guitar picking. This set is a revelation for Cajun and Country music fans alike. Bear Family.
