Editorial Reviews

The issue of whether a white boy can sing the blues was settled a long time ago, when Jimmie Rodgers let loose his railroad hobo moan. The question of whether John Hammond--the privileged white son of a legendary record-industry talent scout--could sing the blues with the same legitimacy and deep feeling as his Afro-Delta inspirations took somewhat longer to answer. As Jerry Wexler observes in his liner notes, Hammond finally dispelled all doubters with this 1992 release, coproduced J.J. Cale. Backed on most tracks by Little Charlie & the Nightcats, Hammond proved he can step out with a hot band as soulfully as he can accompany himself on acoustic guitar and harmonica. The brilliantly chosen program ranges from Blind Willie McTell, Howlin' Wolf, and Little Walter to Amos Milburn, Mose Allison, and Charles Brown (who makes a guest appearance on a couple of tracks). Trouble No More will stand not only as Hammond's best all-around album, but one of the definitive blues releases of the '90s. --Rick Mitchell

5.0 out of 5 stars not "Too tired" for John Hammond November 20, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Twenty nine years ago in a gymnasium in Fredonia NY I sat close enough to John Hammond performing to see the sweat drip from his nose. It was a moving experience and made me begin to love the blues. This past summer I was again lucky enough to see him perform and was impressed with his voice, his guitar and his deep reverence for the music he loves.
On the CD Trouble No More John Hammond displays his love for the blues and his wonderful abilities. The CD has a good choice of blues standards as Just Your Fool by Little Walter, Love Changin' Blues by Willie McTell and Baby How Long by Chester Burnett, along with some new numbers by Rick Estrin Of Little Charlie and the Nightcats. While it is hard to pick a favorite I am particularly fond of Too Tired and the Nasty Swing.
He teams with the excellent guitar work of Charlie Baty (Little Charlie) and the harmonica playing of Rick Estrin on a number of the songs. Also of note Charles Brown played piano on Trouble Blues.
John Hammond has a voice that is very sexy and pleasing to a woman's ears, so take a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazons editorial review is B.S. March 27, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Who cares whether Hammond is white, or whether his father was a record exec? The snobby attitude among some blues purists that you have to be white to play the blues is total b.s. Most people who listen to Hammond's singing probably couldn't even detect that he is white. Give it a rest. Hammond's a great player and singer regardless of his color.

5.0 out of 5 stars If I could have... December 7, 2007
By Barb G.
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
only one John Hammond album, it would be this one. Although it was recorded over 10 years ago, the sound closely reproduces what I heard the last time John came through Denver a year or so ago. From the Jimmie Rodgers cover "Nasty Swing" to a spectacularly pure "Love Changing Blues" to "Fool's Paradise" and even a little jazzy Mose Allison, this is all great! Enjoy.
