These young and precocious women seem older and more experienced than their apparent chronological ages based on the quality of these songs. The lyrics are classic blues; I looked up some of the songs, thinking that they must be old classics I didn't know, and was pleasantly surprised to find that the songs were originals. The guitar playing is excellent also; classic blues. Makes me wish the St. Louis blues scene was easily accessible to me. Please keep more of this coming. (British5)

This is a record that you put on and it just goes by in one fell swoop. So authentic in sound, comfortable in its ambition and personal in vision, it's what so many Blues records want to but fail to be. No generica here. Two guitar geniuses bringing each other to new heights without overindulgence. This beautiful album taught me what should have been obvious to me long ago -- that the Blues is all about humility."

Released on Shattered Music in 1992 this classic studio blues Cd is the works of Gerry Groom and Friends , including Mick Taylor of the Rolling Stones. This recording is a 90's version of a traditional blues record. The intention was to stay true to the idiom while making the fidelity as high as possible. The project was built around the figure of Gerry Groom, master blues guitarist and blues songwriter. Released in 1991 (Groom passed away in 1992, in a scuba diving accident), this record fully fits into blues traditional standards, both in the tracklist (songs by Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, except for five original compositions by G. Groom) and in the choice of instruments: most of them are strictly acoustic, with Groom's dobro starring. One of the rare electric instruments is Mick Taylor's (special guest of this work) Fender vintage Stratocaster (modified with a Rickenbacker pickup). Paul Ill's (a.k.a. Adrian Well) bass, Thomas Blues' harmonica, Mat Abts' drums and Jeffrey Barr's piano complete the band.

Respect for blues tradition, impeccable music performances and accuracy in recording (all the acoustic sources are amplified with high-quality microphones) are the strong points of this work. Talking about the vocal parts, as for my opinion, I feel the lack of a black bluesy voice: although Groom's singing is always inspired and perfectly in tune, it does not reach the level of his wonderful guitar style.

I bought,(and still have) this album when it came out in the early 70s when Rick Ely was a teen heart throb starring in the TV series,"The Young Rebels". This guy was handsome, a talented actor and a damn good singer. Never quite figured out why he never made it to the lasting big time but this album is a testament that the boy was a gifted and talented singer. (Retroboomer)

The other reviewer resumed in one word all of the intensity of this cd, and i agreed "TRIUMPHANT"!!!!!! When I've heard Outside Looking In, with the other interpretation to "It Hurts me too", I've thought you've done so right. It touches me inside my soul with rare feelings! This is an album to be heard for so long long many times... An album of a blues guitar man with his own way to play slide guitar, like only few men ever did with this competency!!!

Cephas & Wiggins 2002 Somebody Told The Truth (LL)





Genre: Blues
Rate: 263 kbps VBR / 44100 from lossless source!
Time: 00:49:18
Size: 94,10 MB

United States

As a rule John Cephas and Phil Wiggins aren't dark-night-of-the-soul bluesmen, or even bluesmen in the strict sense. Which is to say that other kinds of traditional Southern genres also grace their repertoire, including ballads (e.g., "Darling Cora," rarely covered by African-American performers) and gospel (Wiggins's touching original "Forgiveness"). "Reno Factory," first recorded on a Flying Fish album in the 1980s, puts rarely heard lyrics to the often-heard, Reconstruction-era folk song known variously as "Reuben's Train," "900 Miles," and more.

The fun these guys are having through it all is palpable, and it's infectious. This is African-American roots music at its most extroverted and celebratory. I have no doubt that Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry, two giants of Piedmont music and Cephas and Wiggins's most direct inspiration, would have loved it. The tradition, it is clear, remains in good hands. (Jerome Clark)

Tracklist:

01 - Stack And The Devil 03:35

02 - Railroad Bill 05:09

03 - Last Fair Deal Gone Down 03:47
