 From Barry Jean Ancelet:

Boozoo Chavis first entered the music scene in the 1950’s and made his mark with the recording of “Un papier dans mon soulier” (“A paper in my shoe”). A first generation zydeco musician from Lake Charles, his budding career was short-lived—discouraged bya royalty dispute, he put down the accordion and took up raising horses. In the mid-1980s, he reentered the zydeco scene with an emotionally charged performance at the Plaisance Zydeco Festival and quickly regained his place at the head of the zydeco circuit, playing regularly in clubs, church dances, trail rides and festivals from Houston to Opelousas. His performance style was marked by his dedication to tradition, playing the music the “old way” —hard-driving and hot, and deliberately on a button accordion. Also known for his intensity, he once passed out cold just off the stage after his set, with the crowd still roaring over his performance. Playing until the end, Boozoo’s career was marked by a succession of albums throughout the 1980s and ‘90s and worldwide tours. He passed away in April 2001, shortly after a set in Austin, Texas. His legacy continues 
with three of his six children, all of whom played with him in 
the Magic Sounds and continued to perform after their 
father’s death.

This recording of their 1989 Festivals Acadiens et Créoles set captures the groove that Boozoo and his Magic Sounds unfailingly produced in their live performances. It is obvious that they were feeling the love and so were we.
