Blues Alive! is the latest release from Iowa native Michael 'Hawkeye' Herman, a fixture on the blues festival and blues education circuits, who plays traditional acoustic blues guitar, and is a respected blues storyteller with over 40 years of performing experience. The album features three songs penned by Hawkeye, but is predominantly covers of traditional blues songs like the Mississippi Sheiks Sitting On Top of the World, and Robert Johnson's Come On In My Kitchen, with the occasional contemporary song interspersed, such as Mose Allison's tongue in cheek Your Mind Is On Vacation. Rediscover many great tunes that are the bedrock of blues.
I sure was blue...

"...after listening to this CD. Being a HUGE fan of the Delta blues I was dissapointed. Perhaps it it because the sound quality is horrific in its fluctuation, or fact that you hear the audience much louder and clearer than the artist-but mostly it is that the artist lets us down-HARD. He is a decent guitarist but should never tout himself as a Delta blues artist."
