Product Description

Second release from the British songwriter, singer and - ocassional harp player. His music is a genre-busting collection of original songs (all the lyrics are re-produced in the booklet). The music's hypnotic, sparse and unusual. But most all this ain't no blues album the way blues albums used to be made - although Sankey a decent harmonica player. It's a great set for lovers of the unusual. Sometimes a bit weird with its jazzy horn arrangements. Acoustic guitar and talking are reminding me of Dr. John's. And it's the New Orleans master mind's music that comes the closest to Sankey's production. Lavishly edited release with 40-page booklet on high-quality paper, digipak, and extra carton slip case. A piece of art. Excellent. Warning: not acceptable for blues purists.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is music! 26 May 2003
Format:Audio CD
A long, long-awaited and exquisite follow-up to ‘My Day is Just Beginning’, this record shines with an evermore unpredictable collection of extraordinary treats. Uplifting, spine-tingling, soulful… it moves through sweet sentiments to cryptic twists, darker textures, unstoppable, mesmerising grooves and delicious blues harp. The horn melodies haunt and stir, the vocals intrigue. Overall, Lee has developed a soundscape akin to a full-on street symphony of roots, jazz and funk that will resonate with many. Sparkling sound quality complements true musicianship and compelling lyricism, wrapped in a beautiful, bleakly evocative booklet. The album just breathes creativity. In my book, it’s matchless. Where next…?

5.0 out of 5 stars Ian Siegal lead Vocals! 23 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD
Whilst I agree with the other reviews at the musical greatness of this offering, nobody has pointed out that much of this album's quality is due to the front of stage vocals, which is handled exquisitely by the now famous "IAN SIEGAL".
Don't miss out on this FANTASTIC album!!! You will be sorry if you do, and at this LOW price Eh!

5.0 out of 5 stars An original, modern blues album 17 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
I have many, many blues albums by artists that have tried to create that 'Chicago' sound or that 'Texas feel' but unfortunately nobody does that better than the original artists and my music listening always lead back to them. What makes Lee Sankey's album so strong and important is his ability to write music that has its roots in blues, jazz and funk but its delivered in a contempory way that communicates to a modern audience. Lee is a world class harmonica player but to think of him just as this does him a disservice. The musicality and lyrical content of this album is excellent and the production is as good as any British blues or jazz album of recent years. The packaging and graphics created for the album do a fantastic job of setting the music in context and help to tell the artist's story. This is definitely one of the most important blues albums to come out of the UK in recent years and if you get the chance to see Lee Sankey and his band in a rare live show don't hesitate you won't be disappointed.
