Menagerie: The Essential Zydeco Collection collects highlights from Buckwheat Zydeco’s three albums for Island Records between 1987 and 1990. There are a number of really good songs here (“Ma ‘Tit Fille,” “Hey Good Lookin’,” “Where There’s Smoke There’s Fire”), and the compilation actually distills his uneven Island albums into a strong single-disc collection. However, if you’re looking for Buckwheat at his best, stick to the Rounder and Black Top releases. By Thom Owens, All Music Guide. **

Contemporary zydeco’s most popular performer, accordionist Stanley “Buckwheat” Dural was the natural successor to the throne vacated by the death of his mentor Clifton Chenier; infusing his propulsive party music with strains of rock and R&B, his urbanized sound — complete with touches of synthesizer and trumpet — married traditional and contemporary zydeco with uncommon flair, in the process reaching a wider mainstream audience than any artist before him. Dural was born in Lafayette, Louisiana on November 14, 1947; with his braided hair, he soon acquired the nickname “Buckwheat” (an homage to the Our Gang character), and by the age of four was already touted as a piano prodigy. Although often exposed to traditional zydeco as a child, he preferred R&B, and by the mid-1950s was playing professionally with Lynn August; Dural’s notoriety as a keyboardist quickly spread, and he also backed notables including Joe Tex and Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown.
