Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Jole Blon / Jolie Blonde / Jolie Blon
Cut and pasted from my earlier post:

Amedee Breaux first recorded this song, believed to have been written by his sister Cleoma (as Ma Blonde Est Partie). She played guitar, her other brother Ophy on violin and Joe Falcon on triangle. Joe later married Cleoma and they became the first to actually record cajun music on April 27th 1928 (Allons a Lafayette + The Waltz That Carried Me To My Grave) Joe on accordion, Cleoma on guitar and vocals.
Amedee Breaux recorded Ma Blonde Est Partie in Atlanta April 1929.

Cajuns tend to refer to a song as being 'made by' instead of using the words 'written by' or 'recorded by' which can be confusing to outsiders.
