Friday at Last is the album that the Mamou Playboys needed to make because they knew that they were on the edge of a great adventure. This is when they were home on furlough before a new tour of duty. Here they stay comfortably within the familiar boundaries of Cajun dancehall music. With pedal steel master Randall Foreman on several of the cuts and Steve performing three songs solo, they nail 17 great two-steps and waltzes to the wall as a reminder that they will always be able to find their way home.
