Live From The Old Waldorf, San Francisco, '80
Queen Ida And The Bon Temps Zydeco Band live from The Old Waldorf, San Francisco on September, 7th 1980. Ida Guillory is a jewel in the history of roots music who wears her own crown. Her passionate grasp of Creole roots lay charged behind the accordion, having offered compelling results since the 1970s. Countless appearances alongside her brother Al Rapone in the Bon Temps Zydeco Band have given widespread joy to more than just a roots audience. While San Francisco's famed venue was perhaps more familiar to contemporary rock acts, Queen Ida was always going to be "at home" wherever she played, an attitude that is felt throughout this prized set here. Professionally re-mastered original KALX-FM broadcast with background liners and rare archival photos.
