“Like Los Lobos, Michael Doucet's Cajun rock and roll band, Beausoleil, has its roots deep in traditional music, but makes a very contemporary sound. Ranging from blazing dance floor rockers like 'Acadian Two-Step' to a haunting a capella version of an ancient folksong, 'Chanson de Sangesse,' this charming recording may well be Beausoleil's best to date. Excellent notes include lyric translations and historical info on the songs.”

(Michael Goodwin — East Bay Express)

“Michael Doucet is a demon fiddler and the premier Cajun music preservationist; his efforts with this group as well as Marc and Ann Savoy have almost single-handedly regenerated the form and brought it to a worldwide audience. 'Hot Chili Mama' features new member Pat Breaux, on accordion and saxophone. His blowing and the plus of his triple-row Zydeco accordion gives Beausoleil's sound a bluesy kick. The rest of the group is in expert form, waltzing and jumping along with great spirit. And through it all rides Doucet's fantastic wail, a voice like no other, a kind of metaphor for joy.”
