Come Back To Louisiana

by Michael Hurtt and His Haunted Hearts

The Hearts' patented Rock-A-Bayou Hillbilly style can be likened to a Southern gothic collision of the rural and the urban; the electrified string band sounds of Luke Thompson, Hunter Watts and Hollis Albin blending with a Cajun back beat.
Genre: Country: Traditional Country

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A favorite of everyone from Lazy Lester to the late, great Hunter S. Thompson, the Haunted Hearts convened in 2003 with the sole purpose of single-handedly resurrecting New Orleans' once rich, now nearly invisible hillbilly music heritage. Blending their own classics such as "Mean Mean Moon," "Lonely Mardi Gras" and "I'm On My Last Go 'Round" with Deep South Rockers, West Bank Honky-Tonkers and Bayou Lafourche Ballads by the likes of Jay Chevalier, Red LeBlanc and original "Mardi Gras Mambo" man Jody Leavins, the Hearts' rural rockin' string band sound also salutes the great states of Mississippi, Texas, Tennessee and California, not to mention those Midwestern hillbilly strongholds, Indiana and Michigan.

New Orleans not only got soul!
If you thought that the Big Easy was only about lots of soul, funk, jazz & r&b you should just buy this lovely album by Mr. Hurtt and his pals. »Come Back To Louisiana« is an excursion into great country music territory and shows that this music definitely has a whole lot of soul as well. A must for fans of retro style c&w hillbilly sounds with a certain touch of rockabilly. Go, baby, buy!

Brilliant songs, with lots of loving attention and homage to great americana artists. I love this music, and I'm biased as hell about this album, since Mike and I grew up together.

But even if that weren't true, I still would be playing this at least every other day. These guys are *tight*! I'm not sure who the pedal steel player is, but his playing is consistently soulful and tasty. String bass and rhythm guitar are always dead on, and Mike Hurtt can really sing. He doesn't have a huge range, but you don't really need that for this music, and he clearly understands what his voice can do, and uses it very well: soulful, full, and exuberant to the last.

Best roots revival I've heard since Catfish Keith's last album.
