One of the more original and underappreciated acoustic blues revivalist acts, Ball and Sultan have developed an engaging repertoire with an emphasis on "good-timey" folk-blues, including guitar-and-harp adaptations of songs from a wide range of blues, R&B, jazz, country, and Tin Pan Alley sources. The sixth album by this Santa Barbara-based duo features more originals than usual, plus covers of tunes by Brownie McGhee and Merle Travis — two artists with whom guitarist Sultan has great affinity. Whether doing their own or others' songs, they prefer wry lyrics that offer tongue-in-cheek observations about money, women, luck, and such, making them the unplugged equivalent of Little Charlie & the Nightcats among today's blues acts. This is toe-tapping rather than foot-stomping blues, even on the handful of amplified cuts.
Great stuff and great fun!
Everyone NEEDs to have the song Perfect Woman. Just good writing and good fun!!! Great job boys!!!
It's the devil's doing.
A little over-produced, but some quality guitar work shines through. You'll find yourself humming these songs throughout the day.
Formed: 1979 in Santa Barbara, CA
