I won this CD in a fundraising raffle at my local blues society's Christmas/sampling party. It is a smooth sounding compilation comprised of fellow Shanachie artists.
Joining the party is Grady Champion, Duke Robillard, Curtis Salgado, Mem Shannon, Lucinda Williams and Taj Mahal, Deanna Bogart, Keith Frank, Debbie Davies, R.L. Burnside, Anders Osborne and Sue Foley.
Highlights include Robillard's "Pony Blues," Salgado's "Cookie Dough," Williams/Mahal's "Going Back Home," Osborne's "Boxes, Bills and Pain" and Burnside's "Long Haired Doney."
