Recording prolifically for various independent labels, Dural attracted the attention of music journalist Ted Fox, who became his manager and co-producer.
In 1987, Fox arranged Buckwheat's signing with Island Records, and he became the first Zydeco artist to appear on a major label. This resulted in the band's fourth Grammy nomination. Unsatisfied with the results of the original release - and unwilling to give up on what they felt was one of the band's key albums - Dural and Ted Fox, convinced Atlantic to revert the album to them.

Buckwheat Zydeco's personal manager, Ted Fox, said Dural's music had a global impact and will not be forgotten.
"Many people in Louisiana know that Buck was a musical legend and the preeminent ambassador of zydeco music," said Fox.

Ted Fox, Buckwheat Zydeco's personal manager and frequent producer and collaborator since 1986, said Dural's native music from southwest Louisiana had a global impact.
"Many people in Louisiana know that Buck was a musical legend and the preeminent ambassador of zydeco music," said Fox.


Buckwheat Zydeco's Facts

Buckwheat was becoming a favorite on the national circuit, and his music caught the attention of New York-based writer Ted Fox.
Now Buckwheat's manager, Fox was initially a big fan. "Buck was always my favorite and I'd try to see him whenever I could," says Fox, who first saw the group play at the old Tramp's on 15th Street in Manhattan. Fox had written a little about zydeco music and the friendship that was struck between the two men led to the first major-label release in the history of zydeco music. It was on a cross-country flight that Fox first mentioned Buckwheat to Chris Blackwell, the founder of Island Records. A few weeks later, Fox made him a "best of Buckwheat" compilation. The tape cataloged some of Buck's landmark tunes, and it became a big hit at Island's Compass Point Studios in the Bahamas. Soon thereafter, Blackwell called Fox, wanting to sign Buckwheat to a multi-record deal. "He's really an under-discovered musical genius," Fox says of Buckwheat. Fox himself is not a musician or an engineer, but he has been instrumental in keeping Buckwheat's career on a upward trajectory. He's been in the booth for the band's recordings of Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix tunes, and he's come up with suggestions for original material as well. "I just felt that my role as producer was to introduce new ideas and to encourage Buckwheat in what he was doing," he says.
