Something weird happened to the title of this thread; this used to be the "Other Musical Interests on YouTube" thread and now we have two country blues YouTube threads. Apropos of the other musical interests:

Very cool. That looks like an NFB (National Film Board of Canada) logo in the corner. Perhaps there is more. Preliminary search on the NFB site hasn't turned up anything.

Will look into the thread mixing.

edited to add: OK, this thread is fixed, now to sort out the other one. Not sure how that happened. Banjochris and frankie, your posts now have an edited by me message, though I just changed the subject, not the content of your posts.  :D

According to the YouTube page it's from a film called "Le Reel Du Pendu" (Hangman's Reel) and there are some other clips, one of McGee with Bois-Sec Ardoin and one of Isom Fontenot playing the harmonica. Not sure what else is there but that's what I saw last night. I sure hope there's more footage of the two of them. I also suspect that the place where the McGee/Courville bit was filmed was the same furniture store Dewey Balfa worked in (owned?) but I'd have to check on that "Cajun Visits" DVD to be sure.

I'm sure you've already checked out YouTube for "Dennis McGee" and "Le Reel du Pendu", but don't forget to also search for "J'ai ete au bal" on YouTube and elsewhere. You'll see a couple of clips from Dennis, as well as Canray Fontenot and Bois Sec Ardoin. Only problem is that the film by the same name has a lot of clips that aren't allowed to play out to the end.

If you haven't seen the Les Blank film by the same name, go find a copy.

Even better, fly down to Evangeline Parish and hear some of that stuff on your own, spring and fall are the best times for festivals, summer's too hot. Find a VFW or American Legion hall that's sponsoring a Saturday night dance, they're closest to the original Cajun style.

The following is not from the film, but it shows Bois Sec and Canray in their musical prime:

Ah, the actual title turned up results at the NFB. You can watch the entire film (57 min) online at http://www.nfb.ca/film/reel_du_pendu/  (in French). There is a bit more footage of McGee and Courville at around the 50 min mark. I've just skipped through so far but watching the last 7 minutes of the film at that point is pretty great.

P.S. I realize the title is longstanding, but I think that it would be more accurately rendered in English as The Hanged Man's Reel.  Which is kind of a different image. :D

Absolutely right on both counts!
