Ron Pope does it again!
I LOVE this new album! If I didn't love Blues before, I would now! Ron's new songs pay tribute to his southern roots with a unique spin that's all his own. From the mellow harmonies of 'Born Under a Bad Sign', the album's title track, to the upbeat, get-out-of-your-chair-and-dance riffs of 'I got my Mojo Workin,' Ron consistently wows us with his amazing voice, prolific lyrics and steely guitar. My only criticism is that he made us wait so long for a blues album!! All of his songs are incredible, but there is something in this latest release that feels like he has finally "come home" This is a must have for any music lover!
Did NOT see this one coming. Ron Pope has always been off the radar for me, not that he is not talented, but his prior work was just not for me. Seems to me he was always searching for a style and was, for the most part, one dimensional. But perhaps he's as talented and versatile – and perhaps as "artistically chaotic" – as Mayer and Lang.
I am hoping he has hit his stride here, and is not just putting out a "boutique blues" work like Cyndi Lauper, Joan Armatrading or Neil Young. And while I don't expect him to stick with the blues and start working with Tommy Castro, if he is planning on rooting his future work in the blues (Mayer, Lang, Big Head Todd) while not actually cutting another blues record, well, I could certainly live with that.
In fact, that would be very cool indeed. Time to see some soul out of Ron Pope.
Yet another album, that is a testament to just how talented RP is...
