Biography

Guitarist, songwriter, and singer Sonny Landreth is a musician's musician who is best known for his signature slide playing. Landreth developed a technique where he frets notes and plays chords and chord fragments behind the slide while he plays. He plays with the slide on his little finger, so that his other fingers have more room to fret behind the slide. He's also known for his ... Read more in Amazon's Sonny Landreth Store

OK, so Sonny Landreth doesn't have the strongest singing voice in rock - as some of his critics like to point out - but his singing is prefectly serviceable, the tunes are mostly strong and his slide guitar playing is outrageously brilliant. Listen to the guitar solo on 'Creole Angel' - no one else has ever made a guitar sound like that!
Previous album 'Outward Bound' had even more dazzling guitar playing (maybe it was just the first time I had heard Landreth in his own right, rather than as John Hiatt's sideman) but this is a more than adequate follow-up.
If you like slide guitar then you probably already own this: if you haven't heard Sonny Landreth yet you're missing out.

Sonny Landreth's earlier albums are an acquired taste and South of I10 is among the best of the them. It demands rather more listener input than Landreth's more recent records but in the long run it is a more textured and satisfying collection of his unique form of the blues than, say, The Road We're On. The Road We're on
If you're a guitar player yourself then you'll understand just how special Landreth's fabulous sound is. Complex and technically demanding, it mixes slide guitar, swampy shuffles, a hard-edged rockaboogie and an ethereal, other-worldly effect which is all Sonny's own. He uses everything from vintage equipment to modern technology to get the right effect, but the majority of it is done with plain old fashioned creativity and ferociously accurate, inspired playing.
The mix varies from tracks as hard and fast as anything you might have heard Steve Vai or Joe Satriani play, to old fashioned New Orleans blues, to soulfully profound ballads which would have other world class players gently weeping... in shame. If you get the chance to watch some clips of Sonny playing then go see - Eric Clapton describes him as `one of the most advanced musicians on the planet' for a reason.

Landreth plays complicated music, but it's not a competition (praise be) to cram as many notes as possible into three minutes in a `race you to the end' frantic dash. His music is saturated with the lazy heat of Louisiana, and when it does get stompy then it bounds along like the riffs you hear coming from some back street blues bar where the band plays behind chickenwire.

I bought this having read the reviews, and being partial to good blues guitar work I thought I would give it a go.

Now, I will be clear, the guy can play guitar, and he plays it well. He has a very distinctive style that I have not heard before.

However the reason I have marked it as OK is that it tends to go more down the country road and not the blues for my liking so I found myself listening to the album just thinking , this isn't the blues. I will continue to listen to the album as it may grow on me, but on the first few listens it just isn't for me.

If you do prefer the folk/country route more though, this could be great for you.

I've always enjoyed Sonny Landreth's contributions to various rock/blues groups and wondered what he sounded like on his own. His guitar (slide, especially ) is the key element and it is very good, but, for my taste, this veers too often to countrified rock, with hints of commercialised Cajun, and far too little bluesy stylings.

Pleasant enough, but too close to AOR most of the time, for my liking.
