Varise Conner (1906-1994) has been called the "greatest unrecorded Cajun musician." With this ground-breaking 72-minute collection of previously unavailable songs and stories featuring liner notes by Michael Doucet, David Greely, Carl Brasseaux, and Barry Jean Ancelet, we now have an opportunity to hear masterful renditions of waltzes, two-steps, blues, a mazurka, a polka, and even "Lake Arthur Stomp" as performed by its orginator in his own home. The source recordings for this project were made between 1975 and 1977 are are part of the Archives of Cajun and Creole Folklore at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
