MARK SELBY, THE SINGER/MUSICIAN NOT THE SNOOKER PLAYER.
on 31 March 2014
When I tried to find a little more information about Mark Selby, most of what came up concerned one of snookers finest, whom I didn't think could be the same MS, and he certainly is not. Our Mark Selby is based these days in Nashville, but is not a country artist his roots are very clearly based in the blues territory. He's certainly written songs for and with Kenny Wayne Shepherd, so that gives a little idea of the area we're looking into here. I saw this set,at an incredible price,saw a few clips on You Tube and ordered it. Contained are four discs three of them CD's and one a DVD. Two excellent studiuo albums, from 2006 releases 'And TRhe Horse They Rode' and 'More Storms Comin'' both as said are excellent releases full of great sewlf written material and range in style from the rock-blues area to some tasty down home resonator slide based songs. The third CD which is also the DVD in this set is a livew outing from 2010 'One Night In Bonn', so he clearly has quite a following there and in europe. A very well recorded and filmed set, that with his very solid band of bass/drums makes an enjoyable show. The bonus sees him talking about and playing, obobviously using video footage, which actually works very well showing us how he is inspired in his writing process. The studio albums contain some great tracks well worth getting this box set for. He's certainly a highly gifted writer and in songs like, 'Don't Throw That Mojo On Me','More Storms Comin', containing some great slide work,'Down By The Tracks' and 'Kink In The Chain', highlights among the 37 songs contained in this set plus the DVD ones as well makew thismake this a set to enjoy again and again, a new name to many but this guys been around quite a while now, and this excellent box set deserves to be heard by as many folk as possible. Great value as I said for a very tasty box of good things, any fan of blues,rock and roots will enjoy this music by one very highly talented singer/songwriter/musician.
