||My Baby Don't Wear No Shoes CD (1988) |
Harry Hypolite music CDs This is the real deal, obviously. C.J. is the son of Clifton Chenier, who is to zydeco what James Brown is to soul--i.e., the godfather--and the music here is very traditionalist and stripped down (sometimes, as in "Blue Flame Blues" it dispenses with the bass altogether). Chenier has nonetheless lived in the real world enough to be influenced by non-zydeco sources. His "I'm Coming Home," for example, owes a major debt to Sam Cooke's "Bring It on Home," and his "She's My Woman," would be unthinkable without the R&B standard "Turn on Your Love Light." Even more far afield, guitarist Harry Hypolite contributes a "Harry's Big Mama Blues" in which he appears to be channeling the ghost of Howlin' Wolf.

||Hot Rod CD (1990) |
Harry Hypolite discography On his third album after taking over his father's band, and his first on Slash, C.J. Chenier lets loose with a pile of zydeco. The majority of the songs are jumping little pieces, with a mishmash of zydeco, boogaloo, and R&B all rolled into one, though there are a few slower numbers, too. The album opens up with "I Feel Alright," a sax-driven R&B riffed song, and continues on with "Got My Eyes on You," in the same vein. With "It's a Shame," he slows down ...
