Reseña de álbum

Otis Taylor might well be the best and most inspired of contemporary bluesmen. His White African album was a masterpiece — which makes the task of following it doubly difficult. With Respect the Dead, however, he does a superb job — the man is still very much on a roll. Kicking off with the stark, banjo-led "Ten Million Slaves," the intensity level never dips. It doesn't matter whether he's basing a song around a single chord, as he does on "Hands on Your Stomach," or simply using voice and harmonica on "Baby So," there's a remarkable urgency about his singing and lyrics, never more so than with "Black Witch," a tale of the American South that goes right back to Africa — but the album returns and takes its tone to Mexico and racing for "Three Stripes on a Cadillac."
