BBC Review

Eric Bibb is undoubtedly one of the busiest musicians on the scene, but as Sittin’ in a Hotel Room makes abundantly clear, you’ll hear no complaints from him about an itinerant life on the road. Whilst some road songs describe the collateral damage and ennui resulting from such occupational transience, Bibb celebrates a beatific moment wherein the singer and guitarist can’t believe how lucky he is. Yes, you read right: a bluesman woke up this morning and was happy.

With a discography stretching back to the early 1970s, Bibb brings a wealth of telling experience to bear when he performs a song. With a voice that’s rich and languid, he’s a seasoned pro who understands that you don’t have to resort to demonstrative wailing or tired cliché in order to make a point stick or resonate. Although keeping things simple has been very much his main way of doing business for some time, there’s no shortage of elegant technique in his work. In the end the success of Deeper in the Well is all down to his command of intricate details.

Always understated, on this album he allows a subtle Creole flavour to permeate much of the material through some wonderfully yearning fiddle from Cedric Watson. Along with several other guests – including fiddle/banjo player Dirk Powell, with whom Bibb collaborated with on the Transatlantic Sessions – we are privileged to witness an exquisite masterclass in how to do a lot while appearing to do very little.

The slo-mo rendition of Dylan’s The Times They Are a-Changin’ conjures a commentary on present-day financial uncertainty that’s frighteningly prescient. Bibb doesn’t bang the table but reproachfully points to the warning signs littered in absurd bonuses and ever-yawning cultural divides. Similarly, Harrison Kennedy’s Could Be You, Could Be Me offers a quiet yet intense indictment of a system that demands the weak go to the wall so that the strong can have it all. It’s deceptively powerful stuff.

Format: Audio CD
This is a bucketfull of music pulled expertly from a blues and folk well. And there's no unnecessary splash as its contents are tipped out for our listening thirst - it is rather a steady and even pouring of gentle sips to sooth and satisfy.

There is an admirable simplicity in the performance and production of this latest album. Bibb's voice and guitar playing are, to keep the analogy flowing, the bucket that has dipped, filled and quenched so often before, but the familiar contents this time around are enhanced by the fluid musicianship of Jerry Douglas on dobro, the fiddle of Cedric Watson, Dirk Powell's multi-instrumental offerings, and the great harmonica playing of Grant Dermondy, which includes a sparkling Southern-song solo as a hidden track ending. Just listen to the fiddle and harmonica licks on an emotive rendition of 'Sinner Man'. Brilliant.

There is a faithful and yet fresh version of Dylan's 'The Times They Are A Changin'' which exemplifies the whole with its uncluttered arrangement of simply strummed banjo, Bibb's heartfelt vocal, and minimalist drumming. As you listen you are struck with the powerful relevance of those lyrics in today's economic and social climate, but at the same time the sad recognition that this very power did not affect the change it so hopefully asserted in its time.

Perhaps the well will always retain its dark depths no matter how often we pull such richness from that place.

By G. E. Harrison TOP 500 REVIEWER on 12 Mar. 2012
Format: Audio CD
Blimey, Eric seems to have a new record out every other week recently! I'm happy to report that this new one on Stony Plain Records recorded in Louisiana is really good with its mixture of old and new blues, folk and gospel. Half the songs are Bibb originals, the rest are a mixture of old traditional songs like 'Sinner man' and more modern songs by Taj Mahal ('Every wind in the River'), Harrison Kennedy ('Could Be You, Could Be Me') and even a version of Dylan's 'The Times They Are a-Changin'' Eric is joined by his old buddy harmonica player Grant Dermody and also multi-instrumentalist Dirk Powell, fiddler Cedric Watson, Jerry Douglas on Dobro and also Michael Jerome Browne and Christine Balfa.

I must admit to liking the augmented musical settings on this record rather than the mainly solo songs on his previous record and there is a nice variety here, both in the material and the backing - although for me the main attraction is always Eric's beautiful voice. My favourite track is probably the strangely affecting 'Sittin' In A Hotel Room', closely followed by 'Every wind in the River' where Eric countrifies Taj's more 'techno' version

Deeper in The Well Eric Bibb again gives the listener quality blues - folksy with that deep south influence. His voice is amazing and his guitar skills incredible. Every track is great but for me Sinner Man is superb. The surprise is The Times They Are A Changin sung with Eric's normal conviction and I am sure would be commended by Bob Dylan. The musicians with him are excellent especially Grant Dermody on harmonica who plays a bonus at the end. If you buy it you will love it - believe me!

Eric Bibb at his best! Terrific range of different songs, from simple melodies to rootsy blues numbers which have a very appealing rawness to them.

I first heard Eric Bibb as a support act for the Transatlantic Sessions at The Sage, Gateshead. Remarkable voice and I really wanted to hear him again.

I got tickets to see him perform at The Sage in November 2013 so thought I'd download this as his most recent album.

Wow.

Seriously, wow. If you like the blues then this man is up there with the best. The song, 'Dig a little deeper in the well' is certainly one of my all-time favourite songs of all time by any artist - I must have frightened off several people on the Metro on the way to work singing along to this one. He has an uncanny knack of managing to make the blues sound upbeat and positive without losing the deep intensity of the genre.

Buy this album!
