Cookie and the Cupcakes are an American “swamp pop” band from south Louisiana, best known for their 1959 hit Mathilda. “Swamp pop” is a Louisiana hybrid of rhythm and blues and early rock and roll with Cajun music and zydeco, with soulful singing.

The band were originally led by Huey “Cookie” Thierry (1936-1997), who was born near Jennings, Louisiana. He formed the band around 1953, originally as The Boogie Ramblers, and shared lead vocals and tenor sax with Shelton Dunaway. Other original members were Sidney “Hot Rod” Reynaud (tenor sax, Marshall Leday(guitar), Ernest Jacobs (piano), Joe “Blue” Landry (bass) and Ivory Jackson (drums). The band was based in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

In 1955 The Boogie Ramblers released “Cindy Lou” and “Such As Love.” They became a popular regional live act, and toured with big names like Jerry Lee Lewis and Fats Domino.

They then changed their name to Cookie and the Cupcakes, and in 1958 recorded Mathilda. The record rose to #1 on the local charts and #47 on the Billboard pop chart in early 1959, and is regarded as the unofficial anthem of the “swamp pop” genre. They followed up with a number of highly regarded but less commercially successful singles in the early 1960s, including “Got You on My Mind.”

From Lousiana Bayou collects a number of the bands biggest singles, including those mentioned above, in a fitting retrospective of the group and their distinctive style.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
