Album Review

Roy Carrier is a powerful and energetic Zydeco performer that builds excitement into his material through the power of blues and tricks of arrangement. He is a blues showman in a Zydeco suit; that is, an urgency and a connection to the underlying rhythm of the song are created by periodically peeling away the vocals, accordion, and/or guitar to expose the skeleton. While the material is well crafted and vigorously delivered, poor production weakens the overall effect. The live album is a hopping bayou soiree -- a testament to Carrier's successful welding of Zydeco dance and barrelhouse blues.
