Brooks Blues Bar presents Gordon Smith - LIVE

by Gordon Smith

A classic "live recording" of unvarnished vintage blues led by a musician whom the late John Peel famously described as "the foremost white blues guitarist in the world" accompanied by some of the UK's finest blues musicians. Passion, anger and tears.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The foremost white blues guitarist in the world" (John Peel).
Over the years Gordon Smith has played alongside Jimmy Rogers, Billy Boy Arnold, Snooky Prior and also supported Muddy Waters, Jo-Ann Kelly, Lowell Fulson and Dr Ross amongst many others as well as recording some excellent albums. Gordon recorded his first album in 1968 on Mike Vernon's Blue Horizon label backed by Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac (this album entitled "Long Overdue" has for years been a collector's item but it was re-released in 2008 on a double CD issued by Sony including twelve previously unreleased tracks).
During the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s Gordon continued to astound blues fans with his guitar playing and vocals (he is also one of the great blues vocalists) and recorded many fine albums. In 2009 "The Essential Gordon Smith" was released and is musically one of the finest blues studio recordings issued over the last decade. And now finally, by popular demand, we have here a companion to that studio recording, "Gordon Smith - LIVE" recorded at a memorable gig for Brooks Blues Bar accompanied by some of the UK's finest blues musicians - Alan Glen (hca), Tim Penn (pno) and Jim Mercer (upright bs). This live recording and unique performance should almost make you feel that you were there. ENJOY!
