Queen Ida and the Bon Temps Zydeco Band : Rosa Majeur

Queen Ida rocks! (or rolls, or swings, or whatever you want to call it). If you play an album of Zydeco (Clifton Chenier, Queen Ida, Professor Longhair, Buckwheat Zydeco, Boozoo Chavis, you get the idea) at a wedding, at a party, even while cooking dinner for your family, watch as people get up off their asses to dance a little. Such infectious music. Nothing complicated, no weird time signatures or off-beat keys, just happy music.
