4.0 out of 5 stars Best album of the year?
This album is one of the most startling out there at the movement. Son of Dave (real name B. Darvil, according to the back of the album cover) plays harmonica and sings, but also takes up the space normally held by the rythm section, stamping grunting and humming to create a brilliantly hypnotic backing. This isn't hip-hop style human beatbox, but a really inventive...

4.0 out of 5 stars Best album of the year?, 22 Mar 2006
This review is from: O2 (Audio CD)
This album is one of the most startling out there at the movement. Son of Dave (real name B. Darvil, according to the back of the album cover) plays harmonica and sings, but also takes up the space normally held by the rythm section, stamping grunting and humming to create a brilliantly hypnotic backing. This isn't hip-hop style human beatbox, but a really inventive accompaniment. The songs reveal Son of Dave influences: there are some great blues covers, Rollin' and Tumblin', Mannish Boy, and a particularly a superb interpretation of Crossroad Blues. San Francisco is a relaxing change of pace, and he's joined by Martina Topley Bird for the excellent Devil Take My Soul. The great thing about this album is the combination of old and new styles. Truly fantastic listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, 1 Jan 2007

I bought this album after seeing him on Later with Jools. He is spectacular! Ben (former member of Crash Test Dummies) is a "one man band" of the highest quality. I haven't had an oppourtunity to see him live, but some of these tracks give you an insight into how it would be. Recommended to all music lovers!

5.0 out of 5 stars One Man Band Extraordinaire, 9 April 2012

This review is from: O2 (Audio CD)
I first saw Son of Dave back in 2006 at a gig in a tiny pub in Canterbury and don't know why it took me so long to buy this album.

This is pure raw blues at its finest. SOD's foot stomping, harp blowing, rattle shaking tunes still stand out and the infectious rhythms will make you want to dance along to every song.

If you like this, make sure to catch him live. Amazing!
