5.0 out of 5 stars Siegal flies high, 5 Jun. 2005
This review is from: MEAT & POTATOES (Audio CD)
This is a great album. I saw Ian Siegal at my local blues club (Running Horse, Nottingham) several years ago, and he put on a really good show. For some reason, i never bothered going to see him again, although i had enough chances, but when i noticed a poster at said venue promoting his new album, i thought i'd give it a try. It was definitely the right choice. As far as i know, this is Mr. Siegal's first 'proper' album. This is down and dirty blues sung by a voice with great character. He's somewhere along the lines of Van Morrison, at times Tom Waits, but with an old blues soul. He would, as has been said, be a star had he been born in the sixties, when talent mattered. Now he would have to change his name, don a stupid haircut, be able to dance, and cut his songs down to 3 minute powder puff to be such. Bit,i digress, this album is excellent. It's the best cd, for me, so far this year. Revelator (John The Apostle) is great, the lyrics are just fantastic, you'll just have to listen. It's John The Revelator of the 00's. Magdalena, Falling On Down Again (awesome singing on this one), She Got The Devil In Her (a Junior Kimbrough cover) and Butter-side Up are the standout tracks. But all the tracks are good, the title track is the weakest, but overall this is a quality blues album, sung by a quality blues drenched voice. Smooth, gritty, violent, dark, Siegal delivers.
Do yourself a favour and treat yourself, you might not buy a better album all year.
