EDITORS’ NOTES

Colin James pays tribute to his heroes with this swinging set of roadhouse blues. While the song selection nods to Freddy King, Jimmy Reed, and Junior Wells, the performances depend as much on James’ loose, swampy feel as they do the classic riffs. In “Boogie Funk,” he rips out rocket-powered leads, but it’s the gentle Southern soul ballads that command attention.

Solid collection

From first to last track...this is a finely curated collection of blues classics, honored by a musician whose interpretations are first order. Great music; great production. It's been a big hit on Blue Moon Americana and Blues Up The River shows in Sonoma County.

Heard on Trailer park Boys podcast love it

I first heard him on the trailer park boys podcast and instantly started downloading his music! I feel like I've been in a hole since I've never heard of his music before but dam am I glad I found it this whole album is gold!

If you buy just one...

Colin James is one of the few artists I will buy an album before hearing what's on it. I've been a huge fan since I first heard Colin in the late 80's, and since then his music has become part of the fabric of my life. I would encourage anyone to invest some money in this and treat their ears to a bluesy good time!
