Album Review

Although he had played with some very renowned blues names back in the 1960s (and later served as the original associate producer for Soul Train), bluesman Mac Arnold did not get around to issuing his own album until 2006, with the arrival of Nothin' to Prove. Unlike his next album, 2008's Backbone and Gristle, Arnold sticks mostly to singing here (with some bass work as well), as his trademark "gas can guitar" does not make any appearances. But for expertly played modern-day blues-rock, Arnold (along with his backing band, Plate Full o' Blues) has automatically leapfrogged to the front of the line with this inaugural release. Arnold also proves to possess a truly authentic blues-worthy voice, as heard on such standouts as the title track and the autobiographical "Ghetto Blue." Arnold has learned the blues first-hand by some of the genre's all-time greats, and his musical lessons have not been forgotten, as evidenced throughout Nothin' to Prove.

Nothin to Prove Everything to gain

awarded best blues band on the East coast. Mac Arnold has surrounded himself wth a great band that is lucky enough to get paid to do what they would do for free.

Good ol' blues like it used to be

This is a great album by a living Blues legend. I heard about him on the radio, and decided to try to find out more about him. His band is great, and this album is great, he's old school and performed with Muddy Waters and other Blues greats of the past. He has a guitar made from a gas can. I really like the tracks Blues for You and Nothin' to Prove. Check this one out. I hope he has a new album soon.
