Spirit And The Blues
2000 Stereo Hybrid DSD SACD Housed In A Super Jewel Case. Disc And Covert Insert In Excellent Condition. This SACD Is Compatible With All CD Players. "Spirit And The Blues Is A Funky Folk-Blues Delight: A Bubbling Pot Of Authentic Bottleneck Spirituals And Memorable Hum-Alongs, Especially For Hardcore Deacons Fans. Bibb Blends The Muddy-River Vocal Style Of Delta Gospel And The Drive Of White Vagabond Balladeers Like Woody Guthrie And Pete Seeger. Choice Cuts "Lonesome Valley" And "Satisfied Mind" Are Gorgeous Understated Revisits Of Neglected Gems; "Where I Shall Be" Is A Meditative Adaption Of An Old Field Prayer Recorded By Blind Lemon Jefferson. Bibb's Fingerpicking Technique Engages The "Micro-Melodies" Happening Between Melody And Bassline, Skillfully Accompanied By The Harmonica-Wielding Rev. Dan Smith On "Keep Goin' On" And The Traded Leads With Göran Wennerbrandt's Steel-Bodied National Style "O" On "Lonesome Valley." Bibb's Songs Successfully Trade Visits With Gospel As Well As Sassy, Lazy Blues Tunes About Sex And Old-Fashioned Romance, As In "Braggin," Also A Favorite Cut. A Modern And Beautifully Mixed Record, Graced With Spirit And A Real Timelessness Factor." Becky Byrikt, AMG.
