Biography

Brown started crossing boundaries -- both musical and geographical -- at a very young age. He was born in 1924 in Vinton, Louisiana and raised in Orange, Texas. He learned guitar and fiddle from his father, a strong multi-instrumentalist who taught his son to play Texas fiddle music, traditional French tunes and even polkas. Gate began his professional career at the age of 21 as a drummer in ... Read more in Amazon's Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Gatemouth Brown has always had a soft spot for songs that breathe the air of his native Southwest. On Back to Bogalusa, he's put together an entire album of them, drawing on the work of songwriters like Bobby Charles ("It All Comes Back," "Why Are People Like That"), Delbert McClinton ("Lie No Better"), and Hoyt Garrick ("Folks Back Home," "Louisian'"). Cajun echoes drift across the album's landscape--Zachary Richard's accordion, Brown's fiddling in "Breaux Bridge Rag"--and Sonny Landreth puts the raccoons to flight with thunderous slide guitar on Lowell George's "Dixie Chicken" and a couple of other numbers. Some of the songs are either too sentimental or too oblique to suit Brown's plain approach and grandfatherly voice, but his old blues heart beats strongly on Don Nix's "Same Old Blues," and he struts his stuff like a... well, like a Dixie chicken in the defiantly boastful "Bogalusa Boogie Man." --Tony Russell

Product Description

(2000/01 'Blue Thumb') (54:53/13) Schönes Alterswerk. Southern Music - Blues, Gospel, ein bisschen Country und Rockballaden. Kein Bigband-Blues. Ausgewogen mit Songs von Don Nix, Little Feat, Bobby Charles, Delbert McClinton u.a. Auch wenn seine Stimme ein wenig brüchig klingt - eine gute CD / Beautiful new set from this senior musician. Southern music - blues, gospel, country, some rock and r&b. Songs by Don Nix, Lowell George, Delbert McClinton, Bobby Charles a.o. Although his vocals sound a little broken, this is fine album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gate Is a Gem February 18, 2002
By Tom
Format:Audio CD
This is one CD that keeps me smiling from the opening notes of "Folks Back Home" until the final song, a humorous ode to gators, "Dangerous Critter". Even though Clarence is pushing slowly towards 80 years of age, he can still swing with the best of them. He demonstrates his famous finger picking dexterity on tune after tune and his voice is slightly weathered, but warm and engaging. I find myself constantly singing along on "It All Comes Back" and my favorite, "Breaux Bridge Rag".I guarantee you will sing along with him too. These songs have a swaying, flowing feel, like sipping a beer or lemonade on a hot,lazy summer day and thinking that life is good, that convey the sincerity of this great artist's vocals. He demonstrates that he can still knock out an uptempo tune on the funky "Bogalusa Boogie Man" and my favorite rocker "Lie No Better". Throw in a couple of swinging instrumentals,"Grape Jelly" and "Slap It" and you have the makings of a great CD. In my opinion, there isn't a weak song in the whole set and this is one of my favorite listens. I sure hope we are blessed with many more years of "Gatemouth", because I surely enjoy listening to this and other CD's he's made. I highly recommend you give this a listen...actually, buy it! You will not be disappointed.Every person I have loaned this to has told me they love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A NICE SURPRISE August 11, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Every once and a while, I'll buy a cd that I never heard before buying it and this was one of them. It's a good mix of country blues, a little swing and some jazz. Clarence has one of those voices that kind of relaxes you after a long day at work. While I prefer the blues of Buddy Guy, Luther Alison and the like, there is no question that I'll be buying more of "Gatemouth's" cd's. I highly recommend this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fabulous CD September 8, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had never heard of Gatemouth before, but I bought the album because of another review. This is a great mix of old style Texas blues done by a master. The CD gives the impression of being in a nice, comfortable blues club, listening to the stories of a lifetime as told by someone who took the long road to get where they are now. There is a depth to this CD not found in many recordings today.
