Sonny Landreth: a quick intro to the maestro of slide

Rowena Hoseason "Hooligween"
 
From The Reach

"The most recent of Sonny's solo CDs and the most accessible, with guest spots from Clapton, Knopfler et al. Representative of Landreth's unique 'Sonny sound'. Great way to get to know the guy's style"

"An older release, packed with soulful Louisiana blues and just about the best version of Congo Square. Tracks to holler n yell and groove to, featuring Landreth's swampy-sounding Strat"

"Landreth's love song to the Deep South. Poignant and punchy; lyrically and musically complex. The remastered version sounds cleaner and the bonus CD includes a couple of surprisingly good extras, too"

"Back in time to another early release, packed with texture and technique. Bayou Teche may be THE best Landreth track, but Yokamoma, Bad Weather and Outward Bound give it a run for its money."

"Less whimsical swampy slide-sounds than earlier albums but contains some treasures, and plenty of trad blues references a la BB King and the delicious Ol' Lady Luck."

"The live album which divides opinion. If you've felt the vibe in person then it'll mean so much more, but inevitably offers a very different feel to the studio recordings. Hard, fast and loud..."

"Very early: very raw. Compare this version of Congo Square to the later one (but dig the drums on here!). Of interest to see how Sonny's style evolved but not representative of current CDs"

"Not a Sonny cd but he features on most of the tracks on this John Mayall album. Includes a couple of covers of Landreth tracks plus a stand-out version of 'Sensitive Kind'; a superb Sonny showcase"
