A brand new recorded 2008 release of da blues, titled the "Richmond Blues", Cephas and Wiggins have recorded tight and polished material here, on this sixteen track compilation from Smithsonian Folkways - from the top-notch distributor, the S.F. co. is always reliable in releasing rare old recordings, blues, folk, and ol' timey, with superb audio, thick informative booklets, the same similar quality of Germany's Bear Family. Back to the blues at hand, John Cephas is the man you hear with the clean, distinctive guitar licks, he also takes charge of all the vocals, his longtime partner Phil Wiggins is the sure-fire harp player, Wiggins may be one of the best harp players ever. Both men combined play the blues the way it was meant to be. Listen for their fine renditions of "John Henry", "Careless Love", "Step It Up And Go". An extremely unique recording for these modern times, the bluesmen Cephas and Wiggins play it in the old fashion traditional way, acoustic and authentic, worth many a spin. (R. Webb)
