December 01, 1987|ROBERT HILBURN

"Louisiana Scrapbook." Rykodisc. If you liked the New Orleans R&B and Cajun sounds in the "The Big Easy," this 62-minute sampler from the Rounder Records catalogue is worth exploring. While not as enticing as the sound track (partially because this set steps away from the strict bayou focus of that LP for other regional jazz and blues sounds), "Scrapbook" is highlighted by the disarming Cajun offerings of Beausoleil, Jo-El Sonnier and D. L. Menard, and such equally engaging R&B efforts as Johnny Adams' rendition of John Hiatt's "She Said the Same Things to Me." Sound quality is good and liner notes are included in a handsome booklet. ***
