Editorial Reviews

A collection of old-time country and blues, "Boat Up the River" features rich, deep vocals, slide guitar, banjo, mandolin, piano and bass. A trio of old-time country songs gives way on track four to Fred McDowell and Rev. Gary Davis' blues standard "You Got to Move." Track five, "Big Boat Up the River," features conga drums and slide guitar. Track six is Big Bill Broonzy's "How You Want It Done," modulated to a medium tempo. Track seven, "Boat's Up the River," is loosely adapted from the singing of Roscoe Holcomb. Sandwiched between two more old-time country songs is a soulful rendition of "Rising Sun Blues."
