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.

I've been fortunate enough to see Steve twice: once a few years ago at the Connect festival in Scotland and then last week at the amazing Manchester Ritz gig. As at least one other reviewer has pointed out, his new material is different to the old stuff: it's smoother, less raw, but I wouldn't go so far as to say that it's actually poorer.

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").

Another great effort from Seasick Steve, right from the first track the album has you held. I got both the digipack and the 120g Vinyl (thats like vinyl used to be). Steve loves analogue recording and the ONLY way to listen this album seriously is the vinyl version, the dynamics of the music really come to life, Steve's vocals are brought to the fore, in fact the recording shows his vocal rang and nuances in amazing detail, and in a way I hadn't really apppreciated before. If you've still got a record deck then the vinyl edition is a must, if you haven't then get out and buy one just for this. My early favourit is Purple Shadows, but as the days go by this will probably change many times.

I do not go by the Amazon guidelines when reviewing, as I have my own criteria. So here goes.

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.

I'm a newcomer to Seasick Steve but a great fan of John Paul Jones. I first saw them both perform together at this years Glastonbury and I loved the music. Seasick Steve is fantastic alone but I really like the "heavier" sound that John Paul Jones and the other musicians also add to this CD, it's mix of southern, bluesy rock. I appreciate that purist of Seasick Steve may prefer him without the "heavier" sound but for me this CD is perfect. Really worth a listen.
