Sweet indeed... (like Ted Hawkins)...
on 22 February 2010
A nice record by street singer Grandpa Elliot (Elliot Small) from New Orleans, who also plays simple but effective harmonica. Elliot sounds like Ted Hawkins, another former street musician, with a rich warm voice and a similar repertoire of old soul, gospel and blues. He has good backing from a very competent band and everything rolls along nicely until we get to a live version of Buster Brown's blues "Fannie Mae" which I didn't think worked at all. My favourite tracks were the medley "This little light of mine" and his version of Little Milton's "We're going to make it".
