180 Gram Vinyl Record
|No. of Discs:||2|
The eighth full-length release for the California blues singer-songwriter
"Over the 20 tracks spread over two discs, Steve lives every subtle nuance he wrings out of his voice or guitar. Now one of our most articulate links to a vanishing past, he deserves to be treasured." — Record Collector, November 2016
As fully formed legends go, Seasick Steve ticked all the boxes when he shot to stardom after his one-man invasion of Jools Holland's New Year's Eve Hootenanny 10 years ago. Festivals roared as punters embraced his boxcar tales, self-made guitars and the grizzled warmth he happily translated onto record, writes Classic Rock Magazine.
Now in his mid-70s, Steve takes a more reflective approach on his eighth album, letting his full-bore blues roar take a back seat in favour of compelling reflections such as the tough but tender life lessons of "Maybe I Might" and "Hard Knocks," along with well-chosen cover versions including Glen Campbell's "Gentle On My Mind," the Harry Nilsson hit "Everybody's Talkin'" and Arthur Lee's desperate "Signed DC."
