ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
One of the top 5 Finalists in the International BLues Competition in Memphis, 2005. Moreland & Arbuckle play non-stop in the blues circuit. The past 2 years has brought much more visibility and success for the duo.

They have become a steady draw to fans across the midwest. A European Tour, as well as several US tours has forced critics and fans alike to embrace this "No-Frills" group.

This record was #20 on the Living Blues radio chart in October of 2005. It has sold like hot cakes since its release in early '05, with over 1,500 copies in the hands of fans all over the world.

Major blues festivals across the world have started to recognize this group and seek out their stripped-down sounds.

CD Reviews:
"Moreland excels on resonator-driven titles such as "Fish Ain't Bitin'" and especially on a wicked version of Fred McDowell's "Highway 61." Arbuckle's the main singer in the band and digs his heels into fellow Kansan Lee McBee's "Everybody Loves My Baby" as well as an a cappella version of "Keep Your Lamp Trimmed and Burning." Drummer David Floyd joins in on "Coal Black Maddie" as the band kicks into the hard-driving hill country mode that eventually led to that trio's current release, Floyd's Market."
Vincent Abbate - BluesWax (Aug 31, 2006)

This acoustic duo from Wichita are new to me but create some exceptional acoustic Country blues music although they also perform & record as an electric quintet, under the name of King Snake Blues Band. Dustin Arbuckle (vocals, Harmonica) & Aaron Moreland (Vocals/Guitar) have an uncanny "telepathic" awareness of each others playing which creates a very together sound with the harmonica & guitar interplaying throughout the album. The majority of the tracks are self written although the covers have been tastefully selected and include Blind Willie Johnson's "Keep Your Lamp Trimmed & Burning" and Fred Dowell's "Highway 61". On the traditional song "Coal Black Maddie" the introduction of electric guitar & drums allows the duo to "freak out & Boogie" and probably gives an indication to how the band perform in their
other guise, this is a great song and does conjure memories of a late sixties Peter Green track. This is a fine album that deserves wider attention.

No Singer/Songwriter B.S. Here!
A friend bought this CD for me, as I'm into blues. I was skeptical about the acoustic sound, as many of those guys have sappy - dorkyfolk lyrics. Not these young fellas. I was moved by the intensity with two acoustic instruments - and strong vocals. Great original tunes - and a cool pick of covers. Go ahead and buy it!

Great! it sounds like old great blues music
Great sound. I couldn't give the album 5 stars because I honestly didn't like every song on this album. Regardless of this minor point. These guys have a lot of talent and deserve to get recognized for it. I would encourage anyone who like quality music to consider picking this album up.

Good downhome blues sound
This CD is great. I usually listen to hard rock, or heavy metal, but I had this CD in for about a week and a half after I got it. I alternated between this one, and The King Snakes' Isuses Up Top. Both are great.
