I didn't see responses to the query related to New Orleans (maybe they just slipped by me), so I'll mention the 1984 video titled "Yeah, you rite!", from the Center for New American Media. It describes dialectal variation from one neighborhood of New Orleans to another, and the issue of some speakers sounding similar to speakers of seemingly unrelated dialects is also mentioned.
