Adcock also has produced albums for performers such as Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys and Doyle Bramhall. Adcock has recorded two solo albums, the self-titled C. C. Adcock (produced by Tarka Cordell), issued in 1994 on the Island label, and reissued in 2000 on the Evangeline label, under the title House Rocker; and Lafayette Marquis, issued in 2004 on the Yep Roc label. He has performed and recorded with the south Louisiana 'supergroup' Lil' Band of Gold, which, in addition to Adcock, consists of swamp pop pioneer Warren Storm on drums, accordionist Steve Riley; Richard Comeaux of River Road; and pianist David Egan. Adcock also has performed frequently with Lil' Buck Senegal's Cowboy Stew Blues Revue, based in Lafayette. Adcock appears often with swamp pop veterans like Storm, Rod Bernard and Tommy McLain, and in the 1990s he coaxed out of retirement swamp pop pioneers King Karl and Guitar Gable. In March 2009 a documentary co-produced by Adcock, Promised Land: A Swamp Pop Journey, made its premiere at the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin, Texas. Adcock has made guest appearances on other artists' albums, including several by Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys, Red Letter Year by Ani DiFranco, and several by Bramhall. Adcock recorded a song for the soundtrack of the HBO series "True Blood" titled "Bleed 2 Feed" and has also appeared on the series with his band. Despite his frequent association with swamp pop music and its artists, Adcock does not consider himself a swamp pop musician, given the harder edge of his guitar-driven sound, and his experimentation with non-traditional recording techniques.
