Very good Rough Guide 2 CD collection of Zydeco/Cajun.

One disk has 22 cuts by top notch bands compiled by Herman Fuselier.

The 2nd CD is a bonus with 13 cuts by 2011 Grammy winner Chubby Carrier and Bayou Swamp Band - also very good!

The zydeco is all from one or two groups, doesn't really reveal the breadth of this music. The Cajun, on the other hand, is pretty good. I'd rec this 2-CD set just because of the 1 CD of Cajun
