BUCKWHEAT Zydeco - On A Night Like This LP 87 w Where There's Smoke There's Fire LP 90

I first saw Buckwheat Zydeco perform his duet with Eric Clapton on Letterman and immediately bought that album (which somehow I don't have anymore) and learned what Zydeco was all about as it was completely new to me.  Subsequently I followed the scene and got to see Clifton Chenier and others play as well as Buckwheat many times.  Always loved dancing to that music and other types.

Thanks for this (I own the LP's, but they are in storage for many years). I am looking forward to listen to this great recordings again, especially as I am sad to hear that Stanley "Buckwheat" Dural Jr. aged 68 died following a battle with lung cancer on September 25 2016!
