This is one of the best records I have heard in a long time, my ears are crying with joy.
Otis does it again!
By Dave the strat
Otis Taylor is an amazing man - read his biography on his website to find out more!
I saw Otis twice last year as support act to Gary Moore at Norwich and Cambridge and was blown away both times. The first gig was with the full OT band and was a great electric blues/trance blues experience. At Cambridge it was Otis alone and the music was as good if not better. This is the best discovery I have made in recent years and I will be seeing his act again when he tours this country, sadly I missed his most recent tour.
As the earlier review has already stated, this is an awesome album of blues with a slight twist - the banjo. If the idea of the banjo turns you off slightly, then try one of Otis' other albums before this one. I particularly like Definition of a Circle but they are all excellent.
If you are a blues fan, this is a must listen album. When you buy it, you will listen to it time and time again to discover more and more about a truly great troubadour.
The fact that Gary Moore has this guy featured on his latest album and took him on his last tour can be no greater recommendation.
Stand out tracks - Hey Joe is interesting; Ten Million Slaves. Enjoy
Absolutely fantastic thankyou iTunes
This is the best thing that I have found yet whilst quietly surfing around iTunes of a Monday evening. I try to give everything on the front page of iTunes a chance, and the fact that this album was there is such a good reason for doing that, because I would never have come across it in a month of Sundays!!! Fabulous music guys!!
