Singer/multi-instrumentalist Clarence Garlow (he played guitar, accordion and fiddle) is best known for his 1950 R&B Top 10 hit 'Bon Ton Roula', recorded for the Houston-based Macy's label. A disc once described as "The Rhythm & Blues-laced Zydeco song which introduced the Louisiana music form to a national audience", it has also been widely recorded as 'Let The Good Times Roll', a loose translation of it's Cajun-French song title. Although Garlow never registered another national hit, he was a huge star throughout Texas and Louisiana throughout his career, and his subsequent releases on labels like Feature, Aladdin, Goldband, Flair and Folk-Star - all included herein - were significant regional successes. This body of work has been unavailable on CD for many years.
