Editorial Reviews

British folk-rock master Richard Thompson was quoted as saying 'There are only three white blues singers, and Geoff Muldaur is at least two of them'. After his self-imposed exile from the music business in the early '80s, Muldaur returned in the late '90s with two acclaimed studio albums, and during this period, he traveled to Europe for some solo live performances. This tour led him to Bremen, Germany, where he delivered an intense and intimate performance at the 'Moments' club on May 30th, 1999. Local music critics rejoiced and found it to be 'a deeply inspired and moving concert,' and luckily, the show was recorded professionally, and the result is this fine CD which includes versions of classic blues songs and a few Muldaur originals.

Format: Audio CD
This is a live recording of a concert in Germany a few years ago. It's a solo performance, and Muldaur has taken the deceptively simple sound of his recent work and pared it down to even more deceptively simple arrangements for solo guitar and vocal. I find his work compelling. This is a clean recording, with little crowd noise (except a little polite applause). The song selection is similar to the sets he's played in solo shows in the Los Angeles area in the past couple of years (there's a concert schedule on his web site).
About 2/3 of the songs here are on his two recent albums, Password and Secret Handshake. These live versions have similar feel to those two albums, and listeners who already have them may not feel the need to buy this one. Almost all the songs not on those albums are all on other G.M. compilations, though not always widely available. My advice is to buy this album for the sound of the solo arrangements.
Almost everything here is just beautiful (though I prefer Eric Clapton's version of Motherless Child). To me, "Gee baby, ain't I been good to you" and "Tennessee blues" are the most special cuts, because of their careful treatment here and because I hadn't heard them on his earlier discs.
The first is an old jazz tune (credited to Donald Matthew Redman & Andy Razaf). The lyrics express only love (mostly shown through expensive gifts), but the slow pace and strained tone are more telling than the words. The song's hook is in the thoughts left unsaid. Tennessee blues (Bobby Charles) is a warm feeling soft folk-sounding song about longing for someplace new. Like the rest of the album, the beauty of both these songs is in the careful and sensitive guitar and vocal performance. Absolutely beautiful.

This is a wonderful cd. I saw Geoff Muldaur and Fritz Richmond, (a terrific washtub bass player) a year ago December and this cd is just like having that concert right in my living room (minus the bass). Geoff's bluesy guitar playing is so sweet and he's got an amazing singing voice, full of soul while still being very melodic. Really, this guy is a master at what he does. If you love acoustic blues, enjoy!

My wife and I attended a Geoff Muldaur concert in Fort Worth TX on 11/3/2006. I know because when I bought this CD during an intermission, Geoff signed and dated the cover.

During that show, Geoff mentioned that he plays a Martin guitar diplaying his signature. I checked it out...his guitar is listed on the Martin website. Not a cheap guitar!

Some of his guitar playing reminds me of Gamble Rogers' and Chet Atkins' techniques. Geoff is amazing on that little Martin.

I have say, since I bought this CD, I like Blues more and more.
