5.0 out of 5 stars Eric's voice still has lots of power and drama..., 3 Feb 2013
This review is from: `Til Your River Runs Dry [VINYL] (Vinyl)
The black and white picture on the album cover shows Eric looking quite wrinkled with age but very characterful, a bit like his voice which is still in great shape and full of the drama which was always a feature of his singing from his earliest days with the Animals in the 1960s. You'd certainly never guess Eric is in his 70s, his voice still has lots of power and authority and he completely dominates every song.

The album was recorded in California and New Orleans features songs written by Eric, including a tribute to Bo Diddley one of his R&B heroes, as well as Marc Cohn's "Medicine Man" and Bo Diddley's own song "Before you accuse me", which is given a New Orleans makeover. Also featured are guitarists Johnny Lee Schell and Billy Watts, Jon Cleary on keyboards and drummer Tony Braunagel who co-produced the album with Eric. This is a great-sounding album of classic blues-based rock that doesn't sound at all dated and has lots of variety in the songs and arrangements, from the swamp rock of "River is rising" to the restrained Latin ballad "Wait" to the strident rock of "Old habits die hard". Excellent album from a great 60s surviver.
