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 Macy's. 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 Garlow's signature piece. Originally a 78 only release, this appears on 45 for the first time. Such was the song's 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...
