If you want to find out more, much more, about Cajun music from 1928 through 1960, do yourself a favor and read the blog Early Cajun Music.  One song is treated in each posting, taken from the author’s 78 collection.  It’s still new, starting up in August 2014, and I really hope it will be kept up.  The author is anonymous, but maintains several other Louisiana-related blogs.  Links are well chosen, for artists and songs, usually pointing to Wikipedia and YouTube recordings.  Lyrics are given in French or English, from the original.  There may also be photos of artists and old 78s.  And each post contains footnotes, so you can learn more!  If you are at all curious about Cajun music’s past, this a great place to go.
