Album Notes
The first song we wrote for the album was "Back To 1929”, a flight of fancy about going back in time to the year 1929 and what it might have been like in the deep south on a Saturday night, after working all week in the fields. At the same time we wanted to pay tribute to some of the old blues men and women of that era by mentioning them in the song. 1920 to 1929 was the start of the whole blues recording boom and the Race Record market in the south.
We are are both deeply influenced by the acoustic blues/roots music that began at that time and came out of the southern states and on this recording our goal was to present that style of music in a contemporary fashion while staying true to the roots.
Most of the songs were recorded live off the floor and were first or second takes, with a minimum of overdubs. This recording is essentially how we sound live as a duo and covers a range of styles from field hollers, delta blues, and gospel to country blues.
The following is a quote from Blues In Britain magazine:

" While the musicianship is of the highest quality, the star of the show is Hyatt’s soulful, melodic voice, epitomized by her passionate rendering of the six- minute ‘Heartbreaker Blues’, accompanied solely by Burden’s acoustic guitar. Such is the quality of the self-penned originals that you could be forgiven for thinking that fine old classics had been unearthed. Strangely sequenced at track ten, the more contemporary ‘Home Reno Blues’ must be a candidate for album stand-out track, with it’s rhythmic guitar and upright bass backing to Hyatt’s superb vocals".
