What a strange record! It is a true throwback to the 20's and thirties and I absolutely love it. If you've been to New Orleans you will have seen bands and artists like this perfoming in bars and clubs all over the place. This album will appear to young blues aficionados and those who are in to Mumford and Sons and the like, but I could give this to my mother and she'd love it as well. I just hope the PC police keep their paws off this as I have heard rumblings of dissent about a white Australian in his mid thirties recreating this sound with a deep "negro" voice. This doesn't appear to be a pastiche, he really means it and I'd recommend an interview in Word magazine to prove it. I sense someone who really loves this sort of music and is trying to make it as authentic as possible. Or are we all being gulled?
Anyway, as it stands this album is fascinating and fantastic and a cult hit in the making.
