A Brit in Hill Country,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Candy Store Kid (Audio CD)
What originally attracted me to this CD was the mention of the backing band, The Mississippi Mudbloods. They being the Dickinson brothers, Alvin Youngblood Hart et al.
Of course Ian Siegal has his own distinctive voice and is a mean guitarist also but the sound of Mississippi Hill Country shines through.
I must also mention the soulful backing vocals that lift certain of the songs to a higher degree.
Kicking off with 'Bayou Country' you'll find yourself in the middle of the swamps where 'Kingfish' finds the same dirty groove.
'I am the train' is also one of the more outstanding songs on Candy Store Kid.
The musicianship, needless to say, is masterfull throughout the whole album.
The only song I don't like very much is 'The Fear'.
All this good news means of course that I need to get me his previous album 'The Skinny' asap.
You? You should get this new and nice groovin' blues album now.
