Cleoma Breaux "C'est Pour Cleoma" MP3/Flac

Anabella says: "Hi Johnny. I've titled this Cleoma Breaux compilation "C'est Pour Cleoma". The one link is for over 3 hours of music...there is no artwork, but I'll attach a picture you can use....
I started this project for myself, thinking it important to try and gather everything recorded by Cleoma Breaux....who might possibly be considered the Cajun equivalent of Maybelle Carter.

Cleoma, along with her husband Joe Falcon, recorded the first Cajun record. She was the first woman inducted into the Cajun Music Hall of Fame. I doubt that many would argue that she is the mother of modern Cajun music.

This project was complicated by two factors. The first being that I'm not sure the 12 or 13 recordings missing from this collection even exist anymore. [Please, if some of you know differently, let me know]. The second complication goes to the very heart of why I think Cleoma is important, in and of herself. Her family band, the one she grew up playing guitar with, was the Breaux Freres. She recorded with her brothers several times after she was married to Joe. and her brothers, in turn, very likely played on some recordings credited to Joe and Cleoma [the musicians playing on these recordings is less known than is often presented].

Thus, it becomes hard to draw the line between the recordings made by the Breaux Freres and those credited to Joe and Cleoma. That is, it's hard to draw the line if one looks at Cleoma as being central to an extended family of musicians. A very important extended family of musicians.
So, this collection is for Cleoma....daughter of the legendary accordion player Auguste Breaux, sister of the fabulous Breaux Freres, and wife of Joe Falcon....along with whom she was not only the the biggest Cajun star of the day, but also the only female Cajun recording artist working at the time.
None of these recordings were made later than 1937. The quality varies greatly as they come from numerous sources, including 78's. As far as i know, this is the largest collection of Joe Falcon/Cleoma Breaux Falcon/Breaux Freres available. I only wish it was 100% complete".

Johnny says: "Hi Anabella, thank you VERY much for your share, this is great (and rare!) stuff. Hopefully there's a volunteer who likes to make some nice covers, and, off course, I sincerely hope that visitors of this blog will send (some of) the recordings of Cleoma Breaux that are missing in this compilation. So friends, if you have any of the missing recordings, please send them to us. Many thanks in advance for your cooperation!"
