Review Date: October 2007
by Arthur Shuey
This guy's fascinating in that he's stepped straight into 2005 from 1967. This is psychedelia a la Jimi Hendrix. Not that it sounds like Hendrix; it just shares the same ideas of musical expression. The title track is an acid blues, heavy on droning electric guitar, laid over a New Orleans parade second line percussion beat. That's novel and cool. The fact that Turner covers the Hendrix classic, “The Wind Cries Mary,” and sounds completely like Eddie Turner and nothing at all like Jimi Hendrix is a nice, subtle touch.
Acid blues at its best. Thank Eddie Turner and Northern Blues for reminding us how good that can be.
