I first heard Seasick Steve a few years ago now on Jools Holland's Hootenanny and was blown away. With lyrics written by himself and simple catchy music Steve produces the kind of music that others can only dream of. It is refreshing in a world of music that has become in many cases too commercialised that people like Seasick Steve are still around keeping things pure - especially on the Blues scene, where the songs are supposed to speak to us.
On this album are in total 12 tracks with Dan Magnusson playing drums on 7 of them. Where Steve really excels is when he is playing and singing by himself and these tracks are really good. All in all this is a brilliant album to have. If you are looking at this item then you probably already know Steve's work from previous albums, but if this is your first time then you are in for a real treat if you get this.
Although there are 12 tracks on this there are in fact 13 because if you listen to the last track it is extended, and after everyone says their goodbyes the song plays; Amy LaVere sings on this track.
