Synopsis

Amazon.com
Mike Henderson offers up a whole album's worth of blues on "First Blood." Joining the singer-guitarist are former Stevie Ray Vaughan keyboardist Reese Wynans and two Nashville session pros, drummer John Gardner and bassist Glen Worf. The arrangements are neither too polite nor too self-indulgent but instead relight the original flame inside old blues standards by J.B. Hutto, Hound Dog Taylor, and Otis Spann. This album should shatter every stereotype about Nashville musicians. --Geoffrey Himes

CD Reviews

Great undiscoverd blues
Michael Stacy | Columbia, MO USA | 04/02/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"...by a great undiscoved talent. When I first met Mike he was playing great mandolin and flat top guitar in a bluegrass-folk band in Collegetown USA (Columbia, Mo). He went to Nashville to make his living doing the same in sessions and along the way wrote for everybody from the T-birds to Trisha to the silver screen. But he's at home on this album, and he's good enough Reese Wynans is doing some of his best work on the keyboards for him here. (Delbert McClinton does some background for him on another album.) If that's not enough, the liner notes on this one, that call Mike's slide work "stunning," the band "some men I wanted to play music with, and the album "the magic of a great blues man and a great band," are from no less an axeman than Mark Knopfler. Mike's not just a jack of all trades he's a master, covering classic blues with supberb electric, acoustic and slide guitar, harmonica and a voice for the blues better than most. Don't let the cowboy hat fool you, this is a bluesman. If you want to see how well he can write blues check out "Thicker Than Water." Oh yeah, his country ain't bad either."
ANOTHER SUPERB BLUES CD FROM HENDERSON
HANS D HARMS | runaway bay, QLD Australia | 04/10/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I first came upon THICKER THAN WATER and bought this not long after. Both these CD's are now among my favourite blues CD's
and I've introduced a great number of people to this band. For
good time rocking blues with great vocals and superb guitar work
you should not go past this band. Their sound is a bit like the STONES as it is a bit loose and 'DIRTY'. That is not a critisism
as it only adds to the overall flavour of this CD. Not much to fault here. GREAT ROCKING BLUES and not one bad track."
