"Gate" opens many many doors

"The Peacock Recordings are wonderful, to me, who came late (just in the last 15 years) to Gatemouth's army off fans. His fiddle sizzles, his guitar is immediately recognizable - a veritable signature style. It's hard to distinguish between these tunes and most of his recent releases. To say that is a curse to some but to my ears it means he has ploughed many many different rows and yet the Gate imprint is on every one. Fans or would-be buyers should also check out his "new world" (somebody else's term not mine) recordings with a Namibian drummer and Ry Cooder. Better yet, if you can find it, check out his "Making Music" album created with Roy Clark (yes, Hee Haw's Roy Clark, 5 or 10 times winner of artist of the year in circles around Nashville). A veritable how-to for about six or seven different kinds of blues-ish music. Buy this Peacock album, play it (or inflict it) on friends because they will only - ears open - love it. It is musicians like Gatemouth who make the blues so personal, so enduring, so powerful. A living history that I pray will be still accessible twenty, nay, 50 years from now."
Gatemouth's swinging blues...

"T-Bone swings, B.B. swings, and Gatemouth swings. Rare blues violin performance shines. A1 sound quality. You must have one."

"all of these recrodings were made between 1952-1959, and they show why Clarence Gatemouth Brown was such an influence on so many gutiar players after him. He and T Bone Walker were the undisputed kings of Texas Blues. There is even a cut where he plays violin, which sounds a bit like old SugarCane Harris stuff. Great CD."
