REVIEW: Country Music Facts and News (Nashville)
12/08 Americana CD of The Month
By Barry McCloud
When I listened I was on a time journey back to my folk club and folk agency days back at the end of the 60’s.
Del’s voice is a mix of Jack and Chicken Soup; edgy yet feel good. Hearing him and I am reliving the essence of Stefan Grossman, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Mungo Jerry and then I hear the Lovin’ Spoonful in full glory and then someone is playing the harp and lo and behold it is old John Sebastian actually playing what sounds to me like
a Marine Band.
There’s also some great bottleneck from Tommy Burroughs that takes me back to Mike Chapman. Man, this is one of the best CDs to cross my desk. Next time Del, get your next CD to me sooner so that I can rave quicker!!
