Bayou des mystères
1976, RZ Records RZ 1017
Recorded at the Studio in the Country, Bogalusa, Louisiana, spring of 1976. Produced by Pierre Lattès Zachary’s first French language album. Kenneth Richard-mandoline, Roy Harrington-bass, Steve Broussard-guitar, Bonnie Guidry-violin, Michael Doucet-fiddle, Bessyl Duhon-fiddle, John Prados-drums, and Bill Usher-percussion. Melding of traditional Cajun and modern rock styles. Of particular interest is a heart wrenching version of “Réveille”, inspired by the deportation of the Acadians, Zachary’s ancestors, from Nova Scotia in 1755.
