TOP 500 REVIEWERon 29 October 2012
I normally associate Bob Brozman with acoustic blues played with a slide on a National guitar but a quick look through his most recent records reveals that he has diversified, including both playing other instruments and taking in music from other cultures. This record sees him using his prestigious slide technique but often embellishing it with other musical idioms rather than just blues, so for example "Rhythm is the thing" sounds like an Indian raga. Although the record is still acoustic many tracks feature Jim Norris on percussion, which gives these tracks an extra dimension from most `guitar' albums - just listen to "Cannibal stomp" which really rocks. Although mainly instrumental Bob does also sing and tracks like the very melodic "Strange mind blues" almost sound like the Beatles. So this is a very varied, entertaining album featuring great playing from Bob on guitar and also more exotic instruments, such as the ukulele - check out "Ow! My uke's on fire!" and you'll burn your own ukulele! However, just when you thought that Bob had given up straight blues the final track "Lonesome blues" features Bob playing a sensitive, eerie Skip James-style unaccompanied blues - wonderful!

Bob Brozman once again displays his stunning virtuosity on this the final album before his death in April. The blues tracks are particularly good. Those who have loved his music (as I have for many years) will not be disappointed and left to mourn the passing of a great musician.
