Product Description

Product Description

For four decades, singer-songwriter-guitarist Eric Bibb has criss-crossed the globe, captivating live audiences with music that's steeped in the tradition of American blues and layered with generous shades of folk and gospel.

'Troubadour Live', captures one of those powerful live performances in an intimate but emotionally charged setting and was recorded in December 2010 at Uppsala, Sweden. The album also includes two bonus tracks crafted in the studio.

Eric Bibb is, in every respect, a modern-day troubadour - heir to the legacy of Lead Belly, Woody Guthrie, Odetta and countless other great voices of the early and mid-20th century. After many ambitious studio albums his intention with this CD is to document and share with a wider audience what he's been doing live on stage.

He also wanted to work with some of his favourite musicians including Swedish guitarist Staffan Astner, who has recorded and/or performed with Ray Charles, Ian Hunter, Celine Dion and many others. Also on hand are Glen Scott, Andre De Lange and Paris Renita, the gospel trio collectively known as Psalm4.

Highlights from the CDs eleven live tracks include Eric's tribute to B.B. King, "Tell Riley", the stirring "New World Comin' Through" with Psalm4 and the spiritual and melodic "Connected". The latter includes subtle piano interlude by long-time colleague Glen Scott and a touching moment when Andre De Lange begins to sing in Zulu at the end of the song.

The two studio recorded bonus tracks are "Put Your Love First", a country-flavoured vocal duet with Australian singer-songwriter Troy Cassar-Daley and "If You Were Not My Woman," a straight-up reggae track with heartfelt, devotional lyrics.

Review

(4 stars) A masterful modern blues pairing...Astner adds a respectful edge to Bibb's articulate playing and storytelling...understated and sublime. -- Guitarist, (David Hands), June 2011

(4 stars) A wonderfully low-key set...almost flawless for sound quality...Bibb's vocals are as soothing and resourceful as ever. -- R2, (Gareth Hayes), May / June 2011

(4 stars) The American singer-guitarist is in characteristically soulful mood...Bibb digs into his gospel roots, too. -- The Sunday Times, (Clive Davis), May 22, 2011

Format: Audio CD
I've been a fan of Eric's since his first two Opus 3 CDs and I've got half a dozen of his other albums and seen him live many times. This CD perfectly captures the atmosphere of his live gigs but the BIG bonus for me was the electric guitar playing of Staffan Astner which is superb throughout and perfectly complements Eric's own guitar and his beautiful vocals. I also really enjoyed the Sound Four gospel singers who joined Eric for "Thanks for the joy" and one of my all-time Bibb favourites "New world coming through". A good collection of material featuring old songs like "Tell Riley", "The cape" and "New world coming through", newer songs like "New home" from 'Booker's guitar' and other songs that I wasn't familiar with but for me it was Staffan Astner's guitar playing that really made this album special.

Heard Eric Bibb live 3 years ago and only had his Diamond Days album. Bought this album after hearing a track on Radio 2.
Absolutely love it - Steffan Astner's guitar is simply amazing - so sympathetic to each track.
"Walkin' blues again" is worth the price of admission alone : I recommend listening to it through headphones.
Feel this album will be a firm favourite in our house for many years.

First Eric Bibb purchase and very pleased I did. Lovely recording and it's going to make subsequent studio recorded albums sound a bit flat.
Highly recommended if you like your music REAL.

By Ericu on 12 Nov 2013
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Having recently (October 2013) seen Eric Bibb live I bought this album to try and recapture the atmosphere of a fantastic set.
It does that, despite being essentially just two musicians rather than Bibb with a four piece combo.
Bibb's voice and guitar playing are superbly augmented by the guitar of Staffan Astner.
As with all great live performances there are twists and changes to numbers that the audience know from studio albums and other live performances, which makes the CD listeners aware that they are hearing an "audio snapshot" of two artistes at the top of their game.
Another dimension is added when Bibb and Astner are joined by members of Psalm4.
So, although this CD was not quite what I was expecting (due to my lack of research), I have absolutely no regrets about buying it and will be playing it a lot in the days and years to come.
PS. I have just ordered "Live at FIP" as you cannot have too muc of a good thing!
