||Creole Cruiser CD (1992) |
Lynn August albums Lynn August has a rich musical history. As a young man he played drums for the legendary Little Richard-ish Esquerita. He caught the eye of Sam Cooke, who died before he could sign August to SAR records. He played in a band with a young Stanley "Buckwheat" Dural, taking over the group upon Dural's exit. By adulthood, the Lafayette-born accordionist/vocalist was an acknowledged Zydeco master, and CREOLE CRUISER is ample proof of his expertise.
Many of the tunes here are August's own compositions, performed in the traditional Cajun style. August's left-hand facility, possibly gained from his experience as an organist, sets him apart from more right-hand-focused accordionists. On covers like blues cult hero Robert Ward's "Trying My Best Not To Never Do Wrong" and R&B legend Chuck Willis's "That Train is Gone," August's R&B roots begin to show. August injects a pronounced R&B accent into the songs. Occasionally he even fires up his organ for a closer meeting between swamp and juke joint.

Lynn August albums The new sweethearts of the blues' debut for Black Top is an uncommonly varied affair, the pair performing blues, jazz, and every stylistic stripe in between. Hollimon's red-hot licks are seldom short of amazing (his instrumental showcase "Gristle" is a stunner), and Fran's full-throated vocals shine on everything from a Gulf Coast-styled "My Happiness" and a reprise of Mitty Collier's emotionally charged "I Had a Talk with My Man" to the lounge-slanted "Anytime, Anyplace, Anywhere" and the rousing sanctified closer "This Little Light." ~ Bill Dahl
Recorded in 1991 in New Orleans.
Personnel: Carol Fran (vocals); Clarence Hollimon (guitar); James "Thunderbird" Davis, Lynn August.
