Luckily, in 1948 LeJeune met fiddler Floyd LeBlanc. Together they traveled to Houston, Texas where they recorded "Love Bridge Waltz" and "Evangeline Special" on Leblanc's "Opera" label with Virgil Bozeman's Oklahoma Tornadoes supporting. The disc was the turning point in LeJeune's career and for Cajun music. For the first time in nearly a decade, the accordion again wailed from radios and jukeboxes, largely due to many Cajuns returning home from World War II eager to hear their own Cajun music.

Evangeline Special and Love Bridge Waltz -Iry. Added to the National Registry: 2009 Essay by Ron Yule (guest post). Early LP. The Opera Recordings of Iry Lejeune. Cajun accordionist Iry Lejeune’s postwar, seminal recording of Evangeline Special, Love Bridge Waltz helped reintroduce the sound of the diatonic Cajun accordion into commercially recorded Cajun music. The 10+ year absence had concluded with Lee Sonnier’s recording for J. D. Miller’s Fais Do Do label only a few months prior to Iry’s session. Sources within the Lejeune family indicate that the session for Bennie Hess’s Opera label occurred in the spring of 1947 prior to Iry’s move to Lacassine to live with the Milton Vanicor family and prior to a car wreck in the fall of 1947 in which he suffered a broken back. Iry seemed groomed for this monumental event.
