I don't think many people would understand how important this record is. Traditional Cajun music (pre-1930s) is somewhat overlooked. It was around from the 1920's, later evolve into a Swing-style, and was incorporated into Country. In the 1920's many record labels were looking to cash in with rural recordings (Country, Blues, etc). One of those lucky fellas was a man called Joseph Falcon. He was of Cajun origin (a mix of Spanish, French, Caribbean, and American influence) who wielded an accordion. He would usual play with his wife Cleoma Breaux (of Breaux Family fame). One day Columbia managed to record a few sides with them. One of the songs was "Allons a Lafayette". It was a standard Cajun song, talking about mischiveous people, love, and longing. This is the FIRST Cajun record ever commercially released. Because of this record's popularity it opened the gates for many other Cajun artists to record. Sadly after a few years the depression hit and Falcon's wife died. He would never record ever again. All thats left are the few 78s and numerous compilation albums in his wake. But if you take a listen to "Lafayette," with its french vocals, guitar, and accordion playing you will find it a weird record. A beautifully weird record indeed.
