CD Reviews

She Does It Again
Bill | 11/10/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have followed the music of Rory Block for years and have seen her perform 23 times in several countries. Never once have I been disappointed. This cd is another in a long list of blues that comes from her heart. Her adaptation of Son House's music captures his feelings and intertwines them with her own. Combined with the versatility of her voice and the awe of her guitar work, a blues fan will be elated listening to this cd. A Rory Block fan will be ecstatic and surely fall asleep at night smiling."

"I first her Rory Block play "Government Fleet Blues" on Sirius the other day and was blown away so I had to make it a point to pickup this CD - it's truly amazing. Block evidently went to great lengths to capture the sound, the spirit, and the emotion of the work of Son House. My favorite track is "Preachin' Blues" - the slide work, string slapping, and plucking, are unbelievable - I would have thought Son himself was playing and Block was singing along!

I didn't care for the arrangement of "Dry Spell Blues" being that the entire recording is played from a purist perspective and this track has a backup choir which is why I dinged this release one star, in fairness I would have dinged only a 1/3 of a star but the feature isn't available.

I would highly recommend this CD to anyone who is a purist of country/delta blues - an amazing work from an amazing guitarist."
