Two all-time classic. seminal Rumba-laden R&B sides backed together for the first time. Texan born guitarist and vocalist Clarence Garlow first cut >Bon Ton Roula< in 1950 for local label Macys. A unique piece of music laced with Cajun slang (Bon Ton Roula translates to Good Times Roll. as in Let The...) and set to a heavily played. clattering Rumba drum track. The song became a regional hit and perhaps Garlows signature piece. Originally a 78 only release. this appears on 45 for the first time. Such was the songs popularity that he returned to it a number of times with his own answer records. We thus feature >New Bon Ton Roulay< on the A-side. a jazzier. less frenetic version. originally cut in 1953 for the Aladdin label in LA. and sounding just as cool and hep all these years later.
