Two all-time classic, seminal rumba-laden R&B sides backed together for the first time. Texas-born guitarist and vocalist Clarence Garlow's first cut "Bon Ton Roulay," released in 1950. A unique piece of music laced with Cajun slang and set to a heavily-played, clattering rumba drum track. The song became a regional hit and Garlow's signature piece. Originally a 78-only release, this appears on 45 for the first time. "New Bon Ton Roulay" is a jazzier, less frenetic version, originally cut in 1953 for the Aladdin label in L.A.
