4.0 out of 5 stars Danish Blue(s)..., 8 Feb. 2010
G. E. Harrison (Cheltenham, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Crosseyed Cat (Audio CD)
Sorry about the title! Turnip Greens are a Danish band united in their love of music from the American south and they do it so authentically that when I first heard them I thought that they were American. This album from 2003 is a mixture of their own songs and blues like Snooks Eaglin's "Country boy in New Orleans" and Muddy Waters "I wants to be loved" and they are equally at home playing electrically and acoustically (as in the dramatic closing ballad "Take time"). They also aren't afraid to tackle songs by contemporary masters, as in their versions of Tom Waits' "Jersey girl" (also done by Sprinsgteen) and "Heartattack and Vine". They produce a very authentic American sound, with really good guitar playing, as in the swinging "Is it true?", and also a good rhythm section. Yes, I do like a bit of Danish Blue...
