Album Review

A soulful singer who also plays passionate and highly expressive guitar, Mem Shannon performs New Orleans funk and bluesy R&B. Having been a cab driver for 15 years, he knows a lot about human nature and his observations are often heard in his lyrics. While "Payin' My Dues," "No Religion" and "I Won't Back Down" are insightful, it is the touching "All I Have" (about losing virtually everything during Hurricane Katrina) that has the most memorable lyrics. The final two selections, "Voodoo" and "Phunkville," put the emphasis on the instrumentalists who get opportunities to stretch out. A stimulating set.

A Blues Sound You Just Can't Beat

Since this being the first actual Mem Shannon album I've ever sampled/purchased -I am sure it will not be the last! This album (even for being a Live Album) is action packed with funky/rock & blues, and thoroughly something you can pick up and listen to at any given chance. You rock Mem!

Mem will blow you away.

Anybody who can listen to "All I Have" and not shed a tear is made of stone. That song takes Blues to a whole new level.

I just wish I could have been at Tipitina's the night this was recorded. What a party that must have been.

Guitarist, singer, and songwriter Mem Shannon is one of young lions of blues who believes in expanding the parameters of the music. His two albums for Rykodisc, A Cab Driver's Blues (his 1995 debut) and Mem Shannon's 2nd Blues Album (1997), are both worth seeking out in record stores. Shannon brilliantly combines elements of funk, jazz, and rock & roll into his guitar playing, and his soulful vocals are not your run-of-the-mill stylings. In fact, most things about Shannon are exceptional: the way...
