I found this about a year ago. The live session recordings of Dennis McGee & Sady Courville are some of the best fiddle music you will ever hear in your puny mortal lifetimes. When these two cajun fiddlers first recorded together in 1927 they were already considered nostalgic holdouts of an archaic music style. McGee was about 80 when these sessions were recorded - he kept playing until he was over 95.

Until now it was really difficult to get some of these recordings. A real rarity is the recording of Douglas Bellard & Kirby Riley "Les Flammes d'Enfer" in the 1920s section. Bellard is suspected of having poisoned the legendary Creole accordionist Amede Ardoin in the 1930s.

Wow, how rare is it that you get a genuine example of going from the sublime to the ridiculous?
