Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Although this is his first nationally distributed album, Eric Lindell is probably already tired of hearing himself tagged as "blue-eyed soul." But there is truth in that description. Sounding somewhat similar to Delbert McClinton and, with his lanky frame and scraggly beard, looking a bit like a tattooed young Bruce Springsteen/Tom Waits mashup, Lindell has the pipes, the style, and the songs to break out of his bluesy niche and into the mainstream. Recorded at various times in California and New Orleans with a revolving cast of musicians, Change in the Weather falls between a laid-back West Coast-styled soul, gritty Crescent City R&B, and a bit of frisky reggae. Despite the scattershot recording of these tracks, Lindell focuses the album's styles with dynamic and subtly emotional vocals that float with insistent assurance.

Horns punctuate the Stax-styled "All Alone" and the breezy Caribbean groove of "It Won't Be Long" adds layers to the already warm, soulful approach. While he never takes a solo, Lindell's ever-present rhythm guitar drives the sound, filling the spaces but leaving room for his low-key, commanding voice. He's clearly enjoying himself, and that enthusiasm shoots out of the speakers due to the singer's snappy, never fussy production and smartly arranged tunes that call you back for another listen. On the basis of Change in the Weather, the forecast for Eric Lindell is--like his music--brisk, crisp, and balmy. --Hal Horowitz

5.0 out of 5 stars Nasty (as in awesome) Debut December 10, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Wow ... holy wow. This cd sizzles with fresh music new to the blues scene. The riffs are intoxicating(ly) great. I couldn't stop playing "Feel Like I Do," which is the third track, but it didn't take that long to proclaim this a winner. Start at No. 1, "All Alone," and the music grows from there because Lindell has a multi-faceted approach to his music with a touch of rock, pop, blues, raggae, horns/brass, and a voice knee deep in soul. His singing comes straight from the heart. The arrangements are tight. Go for it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes Your Shoes Move February 13, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Eric Lindell who looks like a recent high school grad from the beaming picture on the cover of the CD will turn 38 this year. Lindell began working in Sonoma County, California before relocating to New Orleans. He won the 1999 John Lennon songwriting competition. With four CDs & one EP under his belt on small labels, this is first recording for the Alligator blues label. The tunes on this disc put a smile on your face and keep your toes tapping with a bluesy soul groove. The opener "Give It Time" boasts percussion by War's Harold Brown and Lindell's relaxed optimistic vocal slur, "Things will get better, a change in the weather, it just might suit you good." Another favorite of mine is "Feel Like I Do" with Brown's pounding percussion and Lindell's catchy chorus, "Baby, one two three four times a night, I wonder if you feel all right like I do." "Sunny Daze" also has sparkling percussion sounding like nouveau Santana with Lindell's slick guitar licks "Some rainy days you know I dig the rain; It's rolling down my window pain; Some rainy days I have no luck; Hell, I can't get up." While these are my very favorite tracks, the rest of the CD is strong with a soulful blues groove that's sure to make your shoes move. Run to get this one! Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Eric Lindell Rules!!!! April 5, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The man and his band should/will be playing big venues real soon. Solid rock-n-roll laced with the blues and spiced from the Bayou. Well, that might be a bit corny, but the man is good.

Top to bottom this is an excellent compilation of his small-label stuff. Some favorites are Give It Time, Sunny Daze, It Won't Be Long, and Casanova. I only wish they had included It's a Drag...but you can find that in his live recordings available at

Glad to see he is signed with a big label, but will miss his dates at the Forestville Club. It you are at the NO Jazz Fest, be sure to check him out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simplify it! April 17, 2006
By Sue Few
Format:Audio CD
Lindell's voice is authentic and wonderful. Material is perfect for his style. Everything is perfect except for the band. I know they are all expert bluesmen including the great Ivan Neville, but they get in the way of Lindell. Listen to Markus James and Willy DeVille's "Live: Berlin" cds to listen to what I'm talking about. A simple back up piano, bass & drums (& accordian?) is all Lindell needs. This is definitely a 5+ star artist. Simplify it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh and Fabulous February 15, 2007
Format:Audio CD
While tooling around on My Space one day, I went to one my "friend's" home pages, which "friend" is Tinsley Ellis. On Tinsley's page, I ran across an artist of whom I had never heard, but for some reason, I was curious about him. As I clicked on that artist's home page, one of the funkiest, most fun songs I have heard in a very long time began to blare from my speakers. I immediately added that song to my own player. That song is called "Casanova," and that artist is none other than Eric Lindell. Eric's music highlights everything that is wrong with music today. The focus is on his musicianship, his smokey vocals, and his incredible songwriting skills. His music takes me to places I've never been but want to go. The selections on this CD go from making one want to get up and jam to kicking back and enjoying the company of close friends or a significant other. If asked to give you the "highlights" on this CD, I will tell you "all of them." From the funky beat and anthem that is "Two Bit Town" to the jazzy, bluesy strains of "Sunny Daze," Eric ensures that no one will ever take your smile or change your funky style. This is a must-have for all true music lovers who appreciate the talents of a unique, multi-talented artist. Eric is primed to take blues to a whole new level. I don't know about you, but I'm going with him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addicting Music July 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
One of the best pieces of music I have heard in awhile. Not your traditional blues, more of a blend of a number of different types of music. Each song is different, but the CD has a certain rhythm that has you humming long after the CD ends. My favorite is "All Alone", great slow dance song that makes you want to pull that someone special in close and whisper in her ear. Another song, "Uncle John", is another one of my favorites, that has toes tapping and singing along. Highly suggest this CD to anyone who loves music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Blues singer I've heard in a long time May 26, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Eric Lindell's 'Change in the Weather' has a real good sound.
From the first time I heard just a few snippet samples of each song, I HAD TO HAVE this CD!
Believe me, if you like the Blues with AWESOME guitar riffs and bass guitar THIS IS THE CD TO HAVE!
Eric Lindell's vocals are INCREDIBLE. He has SOUL and feels everything that he sings.
The closest thing to a male version of 'Janis Joplin' that I've ever heard. Folks, you GOT to hear this!
