“Excellent National Steel Guitar, Harmonica and songwriting” Paul Jones BBC Radio 2
There are songs of love and loss, work and hardship with soulful and scintillating guitar and harmonica flourishes, one-man-band tracks displaying his instrumental virtuosity and band arrangements which draw upon expert musicians from both sides of the Atlantic All-in all this collection encompasses the tough and tender sides of this award-winning blues performer over the course of his prolific career.
Volume 1, out today, is a re-mastering of acoustic songs recorded 1989 – 2012. With 2 remixes, there are 2 traditional blues (“Key to the Highway” and the previously unreleased “Yo Yo Blues”), and the rest are original songs drawn from 3 previous solo releases and 2 band albums.
