5.0 out of 5 stars Rockin blues
This collection of songs is no longer the sole product of Seasick Steve, JPJ and Jack White's influences are hard to miss. That said, Steve is on top form as usual and delivers a more rocking style of blues.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hubcap Music
I've been a big fan of Seasick Steve from when I started out with Nothing came out a few years back and waited in anticipation for his new album but after listening to it a few times I can't feel but a little disappointed. None of the songs are really memorable and everything feels over-produced, a big departure from his early albums which really were just him and his...

5.0 out of 5 stars Rockin blues, 2 May 2013
This review is from: Hubcap Music (Audio CD)
This collection of songs is no longer the sole product of Seasick Steve, JPJ and Jack White's influences are hard to miss. That said, Steve is on top form as usual and delivers a more rocking style of blues. As Steve says, I like his songs "kinda economical", when he and Dan work together you get to the real source of Steve's version of the blues and his wonderful down to earth lyrics really hit home. This is a great piece of work though, if you are new to Seasick Steve this is perhaps an easier more commercial listen for you to experience the blues played Steve's way, buy it now.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Mix Of The Blues, 29 April 2013
By 
Angel Delta (Southsea Hants) - See all my reviews
(TOP 500 REVIEWER)    (VINE VOICE)   
This review is from: Hubcap Music (Audio CD)
Eight years after his debut album "Cheap" recorded when he was about 65 years old, Steve has released his sixth studio album with Jack White and John Paul Jones (from Led Zeppelin) making guest appearances.

"Hubcap Music", so named because he plays a guitar made from a garden hoe and two hubcaps, is Steve's familiar mix of blues styles. There is the traditional twelve bar blues ("Self Sufficient Man"), rap inspired talking blues ("(Keep Keepin' On") and modern electric blues with Stones style riffs (Freedom Road"). The problem is that they sound like you've heard them a thousand times or more. Impeccably performed but they bring nothing fresh to the harvest.

But the sweet mandolin of the folk blues break up song "Over You" and the blissful country blues of "Purple Shadows" with Elizabeth Cook and pedal steel bring a different substance to the album: melodic, lyrical and heartfelt. But best of all perhaps is the striking Muscle Shoals sound of "Coast Is Clear" with horns, John Paul Jones on Hammond Organ and some inspired falsetto from Steve. Magnificent!

Steve is no stranger to country blues and for me he is at his best when he sounds a little less like a manic Tom Waits, redneck boogie and punk funk and a little more like Jim Byrnes, plaintive and reflective.

5.0 out of 5 stars BUY IT., 29 April 2013

This review is from: Hubcap Music (Audio CD)
Like all of his albums it's just crammed with blues and soul, unlike the manufactured "Boy Bands" this is adult and manly music from the heart. There is a lifetime of experience here condensed into wonderfuls songs. Just Brilliant.

4.0 out of 5 stars Polished Hubcaps, 1 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hubcap Music (MP3 Download)
A slightly heavier, more polished album from Steve this time round, possibly the influence of John Paul Jones but still a good old blues boogie album. If you liked 'You can't teach ...' then you'll like this.

The guy is just a legend. 4 tracks in and every strum of his guitar is just magical. Someone who brings integrity to a flaccid and plastic modern music industry.
