Where can I get the recordings listed in the Cajun, Louisiana Creole & zydeco music database

By Jim Hobbs

This database lists commercially-released recordings which I have found over many years of work. I do not own all these recordings. I do not sell any of these recordings.

Here is my advice on purchasing out-of-print recordings. The main points are:

  1. Donít buy at auction if you can help it.
  2. Buy in person. There are great used record stores all over the country, most in larger cities.
  3. Buy online from the labels first. Try Swallow and Arhoolie.
  4. Try the used music sources online next, like GEMM and Alibris.
  5. Finally, if you just canít find what you need elsewhere, use the auction sites.
