How To Create A Blues Fan...
How? It truly is simple. BUY THIS ALBUM!!!!!!
If you are already into electric guitar blues with piano and harmonica, then you most likely already own this album or need to - ASAP!
If you are new to the blues genre or are looking for an ideal album to introduce someone to the blues, then this CD is IT!!!
Ronnie Earl, blues guitarist extraordinaire, has absolutely outdone himself by assembling on short notice some of the best and brightest blues players alive today.
He hoped to just jam together for a few days in Woodstock and create some recorded magic the way great musicians did on Delmark label recorded off-the-cuff jams late night during the 1960s.
This album is proof that they succeeded beyond Ronnie's wildest dreams!
James Cotton plays harmonica that will give you goosebumps the size of welts, Levon Helm gives class on how blues drumming should be done, Luther Johnson croons a few vocals while plunking his guitar brilliantly, David Maxwell tickles the piano keys with pure joy, Kim Wilson belts out vocals and harmonica, while Irma Thomas sings her soulful best on two songs that could kill with delight a weak-hearted listener!
Jimmy Mouradian gets occasional help on bass from Michael "Mudcat" Ward while Paul Marrochello and Tim "Juice" O'Connor add rhythm guitar to an inspired update of "Viet Cong Blues" called "New Vietnam Blues" paying tribute to veterans.
There is not a weak cut on this album with "Mighty Fine Boogie" being my personal favorite.
Ronnie Earl had battled with depression the two years before recording this classic but, I'm sure the result has him now grinning from ear to ear!
