I Started Out With Nothing and I Still Got Most of It Left
on 9 April 2011
My brother had been on at me for a while to buy a Seasick Steve album and give his bluesy, bluegrass, folky music a try. He suggested I start with `I Started Out With Nothing And Still Got Most Of It Left' and after listening to this and his follow up `Man from Another Time' I have to agree it is a good place to get a feel for what Seasick Steve has to offer.
I love `Walkin' Man' where the blues slide guitar reminds me of a slightly rawer Keb Mo and if you enjoy this album I suggest you give Keb a try, although he is more polished. My favourite though has to be `Thunderbird' with it's distorted guitar and a beat that gets me stamping my feet along in time.
Steve introduces some songs with humorous asides and the last track finishes up with a tale from Steve's life living on the road. His music is as infectious as his story telling and once you buy one album I can guarantee you'll be searching out the others. Great, foot tapping, slide blues to get you smiling and singing along with.
