This collection of songs is no longer the sole product of Seasick Steve, JPJ and Jack White's influences are hard to miss. That said, Steve is on top form as usual and delivers a more rocking style of blues. As Steve says, I like his songs "kinda economical", when he and Dan work together you get to the real source of Steve's version of the blues and his wonderful down to earth lyrics really hit home. This is a great piece of work though, if you are new to Seasick Steve this is perhaps an easier more commercial listen for you to experience the blues played Steve's way, buy it now.

Format: Audio CD
Eight years after his debut album "Cheap" recorded when he was about 65 years old, Steve has released his sixth studio album with Jack White and John Paul Jones (from Led Zeppelin) making guest appearances.

"Hubcap Music", so named because he plays a guitar made from a garden hoe and two hubcaps, is Steve's familiar mix of blues styles. There is the traditional twelve bar blues ("Self Sufficient Man"), rap inspired talking blues ("(Keep Keepin' On") and modern electric blues with Stones style riffs (Freedom Road"). The problem is that they sound like you've heard them a thousand times or more. Impeccably performed but they bring nothing fresh to the harvest.

But the sweet mandolin of the folk blues break up song "Over You" and the blissful country blues of "Purple Shadows" with Elizabeth Cook and pedal steel bring a different substance to the album: melodic, lyrical and heartfelt. But best of all perhaps is the striking Muscle Shoals sound of "Coast Is Clear" with horns, John Paul Jones on Hammond Organ and some inspired falsetto from Steve. Magnificent!

Steve is no stranger to country blues and for me he is at his best when he sounds a little less like a manic Tom Waits, redneck boogie and punk funk and a little more like Jim Byrnes, plaintive and reflective.

Like all of his albums it's just crammed with blues and soul, unlike the manufactured "Boy Bands" this is adult and manly music from the heart. There is a lifetime of experience here condensed into wonderfuls songs. Just Brilliant.

A slightly heavier, more polished album from Steve this time round, possibly the influence of John Paul Jones but still a good old blues boogie album. If you liked 'You can't teach ...' then you'll like this.

The guy is just a legend. 4 tracks in and every strum of his guitar is just magical. Someone who brings integrity to a flaccid and plastic modern music industry.
