"Wade Falcon is doing the kind of meticulous research that it takes to understand the history of Cajun and Creole music in detail. We have all based our notions concerning this history on what was available in commercial re-release projects and other such sources. Wade has gone several steps further, discovering and exploring the complete recordings from the early period, including unreleased cuts, recording locations, and personnel on both sides of the microphones."
