Album Notes
30 years ago Creighton Lindsay sat onstage with bluesman Son House learning from the master, and today you can hear Son's unmistakable influences in Lindsay's exciting new CD Round by Round. During the 1970s, Creighton Lindsay impressed North American and European folk music audiences with his spirited performances and recordings with a series of accomplished acts in the traditional music idiom—Jon Cooper, Wild Mountain Thyme, and The Ambassadors. The release in 1982 by Rooster Records of “I Ain’t Worried” (Creighton’s first solo effort) quickly established Creighton Lindsay as one of the finest of a new generation of American roots stylists. Lindsay’s distinctive slide guitar and evocative compositions caught the ear of filmmaker Gus Van Sant, who hired Creighton to compose the musical score for his first full-length feature film Mala Noche in 1985--a New York Times “Critic’s Pick”. In the 1990s, the independent label Time & Strike released a number of recordings featuring Creighton Lindsay: the CD re-issue of “I Ain’t Worried,” Scrapbook (a collection of rare vault recordings that spanned Lindsay’s career at the end of the millennium), and The Oxymorons (a collection of old-time tunes performed with Clyde Curley on mandolin and Joel Bernstein on banjo and harmonica). During the last five years, Lindsay has produced two collections of fiddle tunes--A Portland Selection and A Portland Selection 2, featuring the playing of George Penk, Clyde Curley, and Susan Songer (www.theportlandcollection.com). Both recordings have received rave reviews from fiddle music enthusiasts around the world and have garnered a “good as it gets” from NPR’s Bob Boilen.

Round by Round onWorkbench Records
The 2006 release of Creighton’s Round by Round on Workbench Records is indeed an event to celebrate. It reunites Lindsay with producer Bob Lawson (his co-producer for “I Ain’t Worried”) and Isaiah Jones—the gifted Grammy-winning gospel songwriter and singer who contributed vocals to Scrapbook.

Round by Round
I\'m wearing it out, playing it over and over, buying copies to give to my friends (many who hear me play it say that they just have to have it!)......great vocals, arrangements, instrumentals.....it rocks!

Serious and imperious
I'm sitting here with a big grin on my face, listening to the latest Creighton Lindsay release, co-produced by Bob Lawson. I purchased it from CD Baby. You might want to take a look at www.creightonlindsay.com, which provides some background on the various musicians involved.

In the words of one pithy, but accurate, friend and fellow reviewer: "This kicks serious, imperious [rhymes with 'impasse']."

Among other delights:

- Nooney Rickett, who was evidently placed on this planet for the specific purpose of singing "Do You Feel It?" (but only after first serving as the leader of the "Nooney Rickett 4" ["Pajama Party", "Winter a Go Go," "Shingdig"], putting out the '70s "Northern Soul" songs "Tomorrow Is a Brand New Day" and "Player, Play on," and playing on Love's "False Start" album)

- The sound of the guitars on "Um Um Um Um Um Um"

If there's a rock'n'roll heaven, then you know this is playing Up There, in heavy rotation, on the iPod Of Eternity.

Versatility, Soul, Variety, Groovin' blues, and seamless solos
Round by Round begins with a solid groove and stays with it throughout the album. This R&B-and-Soul-infused production re-introduces some great tunes into the contemporary scene with polish and grace. Lindsay's supple voice and vocal dynamics are equally comfortable whether crooning or crying. Great stuff done with a powerhouse of studio musicians.
