Biography

Tab Benoit is a Cajun man who’s definitely got the blues. Born November 17, 1967, he grew up in Houma, Louisiana.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Necessarily "The Best" May 7, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am a fan of Tab Benoit, have seen him in concert a few times, and have several of his CDs. This is an interesting collection of his music, but not necessarily the best. Some of the duets were lacking. His recent "Medicine" CD is better than this, so if you have to pick just one, buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Raw blues highlights from the Bayou April 22, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Louisiana singer, songwriter and guitarist Tab Benoit has been honing his craft for twenty-five years, developing a primal blues tone in both his guitar playing and singing. He's been recording for Telarc for more than a decade, and this fourteen track collection picks highlights from that catalog. The set opens with two particularly fierce tracks, a percussive cover of Julie Miller's "Shelter Me" and the rolling stock buzz of his original "Night Train." He covers Screamin' Jay Hawkins' "I Put a Spell on You" with fellow guitarist Kenny Neal, and adds some Creedence-styled twang and bass to Buffalo Springfield's "For What It's Worth." Additional guests in this collection include Jimmy Thackery, Billy Joe Shaver, Waylon Thibodeaux, Cyril Neville and Jimmy Hall. He crosses into country for Shaver's "Comin' on Strong" and croons soulfully on a cover of "These Arms of Mine" and, thankfully, resists the temptation to add any contemporary sheen to his blues. For a taste of his earlier work on Vanguard, check out Best of the Bayou Blues. [©2012 Hyperbolium]

5.0 out of 5 stars Tab Benoit...Wow! May 5, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This guy is quiet the entertainer. Have not seen him yet, except on You Tube. This CD is the one I grab first in my husband's Man Cave. "Shelter Me" is the most uplifting song. And Tab sings it right down to your soul. God Bless this guy with a special talent. CD was delivered fast/more than what I expected and would suggest everyone that love great music to buy this CD. Thanks

5.0 out of 5 stars Never Fails To Impress June 1, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have seen Tab Benoit twice. I cannot say more about the man. He is a God. Personality, charisma, and showmanship. If you are lucky enough to see him live, you will understand. If you are new to his music, buy this disk! From there, make some room in your collection...

5.0 out of 5 stars Tab`s awesome April 20, 2014
By BFSBUY
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Have seen Tab 3 or 4 times love his music. There are a few songs I don`t care for and he has to sneak in a country song along the way. There were some good tunes I have not previously heard, more good than bad.
