Passionate blues CD,
By A Customer
This review is from: You Can't Relive the Past (Audio CD)
This artist was previously relatively unknown to me; at about the same time as I bought this CD I realized the importance of the blues to the music of the Woodstock Era. There are an abundance of riches here, one of the least noticed of which may be the backing female vocal. The CD is evenly divided into blues and other songs; the two best blues songs, "Night Train" and "Gonna Go Crazy" are also funny while a third, "The Blue March," tries to be a major work about New Orleans and falls a little short in my opinion. But there is much more. There are the two opening songs, each of which is a song of considerable merit. There are two minor-keyed ballads, "Meadowlark" and "The Road"; there are three other songs of considerable passion: "Dear Mama", "Cold Country" "Magdalena" and also several other blues songs.
