LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 46

Rootsy sounds from Henry Thomas – some great vintage recordings from the late 20s, with a feel that's quite different than more conventional blues from the time! Thomas definitely has a bluesy approach, but his use of the guitar is more strummy, almost folksy – as is his occasional accompaniment on a light flute, which is used as a whistle in between his well-inflected vocals. The whole thing's pretty great – almost as if Moondog teamed up with a blues singer – and titles include "Red River Blues", "Fishing Blues", "Fox & The Hounds", "Don't Ease Me In", "Railroadin Some", "Jonah In The Wilderness", and "Bull Doze Blues".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Lightnin Hopkins at his best – a set that rings out with all his bold electric tones on the guitar, yet which also has the moody, stripped-down feel of a blues recording from a few decades before!

Godlike work from the legendary Nick Drake – and exactly the kind of record that's made him a continuing legend over the years!
