Apparently Alcide "Blind Uncle" Gaspard's recording was published under the title SUR LA BORDE DE L'EAU although correct French would be SUR LE BORD DE L'EAU. (Maybe Cajuns don't always give nouns the same gender that Parisians do. Maybe the music publishers weren't French-speakers.)

There is a complete mp3 file of Gaspard's recording on this page.

The Virtual Gramophone (click for search page) has 2 playable recordings of ISABEAU S'Y PROMÈNE:

1. Sung by Joseph Saucier, 1915.

2. Sung by Eva Gauthier, 1917.
