Synopsis

Amazon.com
Performing the old standard "Frankie and Johnnie" with an acoustic guitar is hardly a radical step in blues, but this young singer-songwriter is much more than a revivalist. Using tuba accompaniment on the opening "High Fever Blues" and covering obscurities like Memphis Minnie's "Bumble Bee Blues," the Denver-born Harris finds new spirit in traditional blues on his second album. He has the sort of effortless bluesman's voice that gave forebears Robert Johnson, Charley Patton, and Muddy Waters their depth and spirit, so we can feel the worry in "Mama Got Worried" and the fear in "If You Leave Me." --Steve Knopper

A wonderful thing to stumble upon.

"As I sat in traffic waiting to get into Jazzfest, whose picture was on the front of the paper, Corey Harris. He was Playing the same day and time as James Taylor so I knew I had to figure out what all the noise was about. Once you listen to this CD you will know why me and about 2000 other people stood out in the driving rain to listen to someone who looked 30 and sounded 80. I have found no better acoustic blues player in the last few years. What ever you pay for this CD will be worth the money."

"I could write an elaborate review of this CD, but it is possible to condense my thoughts into a single sentence. If you enjoy acoustic blues or would like to hear it done with a slightly original flavor, this CD MUST be in your collection."
It doesn't get any better than this.

"Corey Harris and Guy Davis OWN this genre. This disc surpasses his earlier effort. What else does this supertalent young man have in store for us?"
