The excellent German music company, Bear Family, is issuing Acadian All Star Special – The Pioneering Cajun Recordings Of J.D. Miller in April 2011.  It is a three-CD set of early Cajun music, with 80-page hardcover book.  There will be 78 tracks with a total playing time of 209:50.  As the description says:  “Records so rare that just a few copies exist of most of them! Very few of these recordings ever reissued on 45, LP, or CD until now!” Order it directly for 76,67 €.  The Euro is about 1.4 to the dollar, so that’s $107, shipping included from Germany.  Amazon has it for April 19 preorder for $95.41.   It was put together by Lyle Ferbrache, who I’m not familiar with.  But it sounds fantastic!  Here’s a brief commercial, with music:
