Editorial Reviews

Eric's talent for both performing and songwriting has been recognized with a Grammy Nomination for 'Shakin' a Tailfeather' and four W.C.Handy nominations for the albums Spirit and the Blues, Home To Me and A Ship Called Love; for 'Kokomo' as Best Acoustic Blues Song of the Year, and for Best Acoustic Blues Artist of the Year. His songs have been featured on TV shows such as BBC TV's 'Eastenders' and "Casualty", and "The District" in the USA. Eric's version of "I Heard the Angels Singin'" was in the film The Burial Society. Eric appears on Jools Holland's double platinum-selling album, Small World Big Band, singing "All That You Are". "Eric is one of the new, young singers that has appeared on the scene that, much to my delight, has a great voice, is an excellent performer and has a great knowledge about the roots of this music" says Taj Mahal.

This is one of the best blues CD's I've heard in a long time. I've had "If Our Hearts Ain't In It" by Eric Bibb & Bonnie Raitt on repeat all night long. Talk about a way to find peace and heart and soul in a chaotic world.

Way to go, Eric, way to go... great rendition with Bonnie Raitt. Fabulous. Thank you so much, this is just the kind of spirit feeling music I have needed for so long. You've given me a whole new world to explore, filled with peace and harmony in a blues world. Can't wait for the whole CD to get here!


Had to repost this review I found on a very interesting blog: David Blue "says it all."

Eric Bibb - Get Onboard (Telarc).

Recorded in Nashville, Get Onboard has been on the production line since May 2007 and Bibb says that it has been one of the most exciting projects of his career. He hits the nail on the head when he says "It's a further exploration into the place where blues meets gospel and soul". He uses the best session musicians around as well as special guests Bonnie Raitt and Ruthie Foster. The soulful and spiritual Spirit I Am is a great opener and Bibb's sweet voice will smother you in honey. The Promised Land is bluesy and bouncy and New Beale Street Blues is a jazzy, New Orleans blues. The latter is another tribute to the great city that is still recovering from Katrina. The eponymous title track has a vocal that is so sweet and so clear. It also has great harmonies and he has more soul than heaven itself. If Our Hearts Ain't In It has Bonnie Raitt on slide guitar and a big production to match. All I can say about Pockets is that it is an Eric Bibb song if there could ever be one.

as has been true for me with Eric Bibb's last records, there are at least five songs on this one that I can see myself still listening to twenty years from now . . . . . and in the meanwhile, I'm sure enjoying all the other songs on this album as well . . . . .while there are some I'm more partial to, I don't think there is a "weak" song on this disc. . . .

once again, if you know Eric Bibb, you don't need me to tell you to check this record out, cause I know you gonna. . . . .and I reckon you are gonna be real glad you did . . . .

some might say that Eric Bibb's physical voice is not spectacular. . . . . but my response to that is it is way good enough for me . . . . and, his singing voice combined with the simplicity and heartfelt-ness of his writing make for an often heady mix. . . . .

he is clearly deeply rooted in his musical traditions. . . . . and one of the beauties of his music is how he works within the tradition to bring forth a living music of this moment . . ..sorta like an artist as craftsman, adding often subtle touches of beauty and modern insight to the work of his predecessors . . . .. and along the way, his blues become both touching and uplifting, and his love songs real and joyful in the moment, and his gospel way beyond the confines of christianity. . . .

I don't know if this record is "better" than Eric's last two, but I do know that for me the opportunity of being able to listen to the unfolding of his music the last few years is a beautiful (and inspiring) thing. . . . .

I like popular music, particularly roots music, which combines different genres. In essence, 'Get On Board' is a mix of blues, country blues and gospel - but there are jazz and folk elements also.

Although Eric Bibb's voice is not especially powerful, it has a textured warmth and he sings with something of a 'gentle authority'. His songs have decent lyrics and subtle melodies and with many, the message is 'Love, Peace and Harmony' (to slightly paraphrase another reviewer) - and, with his disarming and unaffected style, EB delivers this without ramming it down your throat. However, some words of warning - much of the music is laid back; in fact, on a few tracks, if EB and his crew were any more laid back, they'd be horizontal. The supporting cast of session players and vocalists display an uncanny empathy with EB's music and they provide an understated, yet rich, musical backdrop behind his vocals. Full marks also to Glen Scott for his immaculate production and mixing.

I liked many of the songs (all are written or co-written by EB, except 'Stayed On Freedom' which is a 'trad. arr.') - some brief comments about a selection :

THE PROMISED LAND - With its edgy slide guitar and gospel groove, a mid-tempo song destined to ensure 'standing room only' in many a small country church.

NEW BEALE STREET BLUES - A song featuring syncopated jazz rhythms and a short 12-string guitar solo. Also, the muted harmonica playing, during the first 2 minutes, is a real treat. 'God's Kingdom' has a similar vibe (but rhythmically, is slightly different).

GET ONBOARD - A more up tempo song with enough hooks to make it a candidate for release as a single.
