Hubcap Music is Seasick Steve's sixth studio album. On the album the bluesman sings and plays various stringed instruments including a "hubcap guitar". He is joined by Dan Magnusson on drums, John Paul Jones on bass guitar amongst other instruments, and Jack White on guitar on the track "The Way I Do". It was produced by Seasick Steve himself and recorded at his home--The Dog House--and at Sputnik Sound in Nashville.

"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.
I think the central problem is that the music just sounds better live. In Manchester Steve was joined on stage by Led Zeppelin's bassist John Paul Jones and drummer Dan Magnusson, and the three really brought the music to life in a way that's impossible through a hi-fi or iPod. The recordings are very good, don't get me wrong, but they just don't have the same passion or urgency. For example, the thumping "Down on the Farm" was absolutely brilliant live, but it sounds a little flat on the album. Maybe I just need to play it louder!
I would still definitely recommend this album though, to both fans of Steve and blues in general, because it really does contain some great tracks (my particular favourite being "Over You").
The disc arrived in good time and in perfect condition.
Seasick Steve's voice is just superb. It is like the gravel bottom on a burbling highland stream, always in tune and keeping perfect time. Diction is slurred at times but is still clear what he is singing, unlike most modern artistes.
I simply rate the guy highly and since it was my generation that coined the phrase originally I think he is a real cool dude.
