he may modestly refer to himself as “a song & dance man” but american blues musician seasick steve seems to have won his way to the hearts of the great british joe public, becoming somewhat of a living legend in the process. this record once again finds him employing an enviable range of homemade instruments such as the 3-string trance wonder, the dirt digger, morris minor guitar & banjo, churning out a rock solid set of raw dirty blues, spooky minor-key folk & country-tinged belters. his trusty sidekick drummer dan magnusson is present & correct laying down the rhythms, while led zep’s john paul jones helps out on bass duties. with titles such as ‘back in the doghouse’ & ‘whiskey ballad’ this does everything it says ion the tin, & then some! “steve is in great voice” 4/5 – mojo.
