Analogue Productions Originals 2013 Direct-to-Disc Sessions

Pressed at Quality Record Pressings

Cutting engineer — Kevin Gray

"...it was a delight to document my current New Orleans acoustic folk performance through the purest recording process known today. No retakes, no overdubs, no plugins and LOL — no gated microphones. Only my J-45 Gibson guitar, vocal, and the ethereal reverb from hallowed church walls is etched into the 200-gram vinyl disc." — Chris Thomas King, on his direct-to-disc recording for APO Records/Acoustic Sounds at Blue Heaven Studios.

Hip hop artist, movie star, bluesman — Chris Thomas King has scaled the musical range in his career. Hailed as "King of 21st Century Blues," the title works. With a Grammy on his shelf, he has been perfecting performing blues since he was a young boy. His dad, the too-little-known Tabby Thomas, played and ran his Blues Box in Baton Rouge, His son soaked it all up and kept mastering new things. Chris' big-screen credits include "O Brother, Where Art Thou" and "Ray"; here you'll find him cradling a big-bodied Gibson acoustic guitar and singing such tunes as "Soon This Mornin' Blues," and "John Law Burned Down The Liquor Sto.'"

So I had a couple of albums in my cart and I needed a few dollars more to qualify for free shipping. Boy am I glad I picked this up! Absolutely beautiful performance by CTK. For the price of this album right now, you'd be a fool to pay for shipping. That's all I'll say. I cannot wait to play this on a snowy morning with a hot cup o joe. Everyone involved in this process did an outstanding job. Thank you for documenting this!
