“...highlights the songs he sang in Creole French ‚ now an endangered art ‚ and features some of his most souful offerings, with several old Cajun songs recognizable amidst the 12-bar blues. Backing on live and studio cuts ranges from the full majesty of the Red Hot Louisiana Band to the tracks recorded with only brother Cleveland's superb rubboard rhythms for company. Mo Veux Connaitre is a true classic - the tightest of R'n'B with great accordion breaks and rasping vocals. Chenier completists with have many of these tracks on previous albums, but if you don't and you want to hear a musical giant performing the rootsiest end of his repertoire, this is recommended.”
