Ya Ya - Buckwheat Zydeco

Legbamel Not-Pop

When I decided to continue the creole theme today, I was stunned to realize that I've never posted any Buckwheat Zydeco for you, the fine folks who keep me dedicated to The NPJ. I'm rectifying that oversight today, with a live jam from twenty years ago. This particular video includes him playing Ya Ya with the Neville Brothers, a song that I enjoy no matter the performer, but this version is particularly zippy and fun. I wanted to use the Buckwheat Zydeco version of Hey, Good Lookin', but we're due for another video and the only one available has been blocked by the ever-helpful folks at Universal, who are apparently more interested in copyright protection than gaining new listeners for their artists. Enjoy this cover version of Ya Ya while I go and put my soapbox away.
