REVIEW

“To these ears, that mixture of cajun fiddle and steel guitar preferred by Guillory and his band is nothing short of heaven. Adding that sanctified western flavoring to counter Guillory's wonderfully scratchy fiddle was steel player Papa Cairo, a legend in cajun land as much for his boxing prowess as his work on the steel 'table.' Another formidable member... was the renowned cajun singer Preston Manual, possessor of a wonderful high tenor voice.... For my money cajun music doesn't get much better.”
