Album Review

Sonny Landreth's screaming slide guitar plows right into you and carries you along on its feral journey. This CD opens going for your guts and never quits, though at times its touch is more caressing than careening, as in "Cajun Waltz." This CD got a lot of airplay yet never got tiresome, the true test of good music. A wide variety of slide guitar styles, backed by an extremely tight rhythm section and various other New Orleans musicians adds to the pleasure of the album. This music combines the best of zydeco, New Orleans R&B, Cajun, and rock & roll into one mood-elevating experience. Listen to "Mojo Boogie" next to "C'est Chaud," then go on to "Shootin' for the Moon"; there is no letdown, but there is great variety. A must-buy.

Customer Reviews

The Best!

This is Sonnys' best. If you like Sonny, You'll love this CD. Sonny is the most talented guitar player ever to come from La. There are some greats, Sonny heads the list. Nobody plays the wine neck slide better.


This is one of the best by Sonny!! Thanks for finally adding it.

Solid Rocking By A Genre-Spanning Master

I'm told that Sonny Landreth got his start playing in Clifton Chennier's RedHot Louisiana Band. This may account for his grasp of zydeco, which is beyond firm, but utterly fails to explain his slide guitar work. Move over, Stevie Ray! Make room in the pantheon for another Great! Personally understated, Sonny's music puts it all into what matters, and this album is a great testament to that. Find him live in New Orleans at the Rock 'n Bowl, but remember to grab a copy of this gem from the merch table on your way out!

Southwest Louisiana-based guitarist, songwriter, and singer Sonny Landreth is a musician's musician. The blues slide guitar playing found on his two Zoo Entertainment releases, Outward Bound (1992) and South of I-10 (1995) is distinctive and unlike anything else you've ever heard. His unorthodox guitar style comes from the manner in which he simultaneously plays slide and makes fingering movements on the fretboard. Landreth, who has an easygoing personality, can play it all, like any good session...
