A genious, great piece of work..don't let the "electric" thr
Paul F. Gavoni | ma.USA | 07/22/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album (most recorded in England) is a study of dottin the eyes and crossing the t's when playing fingrer pickin/slide. Un less you are a pervair of old/older country blues, there is no way to understand what is going on with intricate subtle changes heard because of electrified guitar. Fred at the time was not a tired old man, he was mid sixties. ECXEPT for steakbone named because it was his Dad who used a cut down steak bone for slide. There is no new material, however, having electrified the unique quirky timing and seemingly slashing slide you find a very masterful job of Freds ability. As a solo performer for many of my 59 years, trying to capture the sound, off beats with the speed of his slide becoming part of the genious of this piece of work. I own as far as I know every piece of Freds catalog, some bootleg, Steakbone is unique, I general think electric slide is rock b lues. Give Steakbone a listen.. the sound is eerie, the ambience is still very delta, also pick up the DVD with Fred performing with ..hmmm I forgot, maybe big joe williams? its just about a guitar lesson and you will see him with his electric that sounds 1/2 electric 1/2 acoustic."
