This disc is the anticipated second round of tunes artistically doled out by Osborne and Andersson. A better listen than the 1994 release, Break the Chain, but not quite as good as the real thing. This is a live band that improvises well with the help of a few friends, like the immaculate trombonist Mark Mullins, who occasionally drops in for a set. Osborne and Andersson have been known to sing a cappella with all the spirit of a Baptist choir of two. The disc is memorable, with the upbeat "Favorite Son" getting some local airplay. "Pleasin' You" has the feel of a song you might hear coming out of Tipitina's on a weeknight. "Limestone Bay" has a Van Morrison feel while still remaining in Anders' more distinct New Orleans' style. "Brother, Brother" lays on a groovy funk that isn't too hard. All in all, a good representation of what it means to live in New Orleans - the diversity of both the music and the people.

The quality of the songs on this CD is incredible. You think you're listening a collection of covers of great classics, so it's shocking to find out that they're original. "Limestone Bay," "Favorite Son," and "A Place Called Home" represent songwriting at its finest. If you're into a down-homey, backporch, Louisiana blues and fiddle trip, this is a must have.

Anders Osborne is a triple threat: awesome blues guitarist, terrific songwriter AND one of the best singers I've heard in years. Well worth investigating...

Somehow I'd never heard of him before and picked this from the bin on a whim. A really fine disc. Very original yet with a tip of the hat in many directions (Lowell George probably at the top of that list in terms of feel) without being derivative. Fine playing, writing, singing. The bluesy, New Orleans, swamp rocky feel lingers.

Mr. Osborne has been an epic song writer since day one. I believe this may be his first studio album, and its great. he is also one of the finest guitar players out there. If you like him at all, get this album!

This disk and his "Living Room" are a great new addition to any collection of "cosmic blues". A great songwriter with a lot to say. A great mix of styles. Haven't been able to turn him off.

I was pushed in MR OSBORNES direction by a friend and what a nice direction to be shoved it is too!
Anders,originally from SWEDEN like the excellent CARLA OLSON(NO RELATION)cuts that LITTLE FEAT-ALLMAN BROTHERS-FREE-ROBERT PALMER(before he brought a suit!!) type groove.He is an accomplished singer/songwriter/guitarist and this selection makes for some very,fine listening indeed.ALL the tracks are appealling but special note for LIMESTONE BAY that features some great fiddle playing and the hypnotic NOTHIN' ON that has a riff to die for
He does owe a great debt to LOWELL GEORGE but what could be a better recommendation than that? Exactly.
thanx col..

Anders is a really good song writer, and has a good band. A good mix of New Orleans Blues/Jazz, and some folk.
Theresa Anderson is the female vocals and fiddle player. She is awsome.
