ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Liner Notes:
Delta Blues came from Mississippi in the 1920s. Unlike modern blues, it was not usually performed by a band, but by a lone singer/guitarist, such as Charlie Patton, Son House, or the legendary Robert Johnson "King Of The Delta Blues". Using only an acoustic guitar, these men created some of the most powerful, exciting music ever recorded. With the greatest of respect, I have tried to emulate them and the music I love so much.

“Traditional Delta Blues done with style, authenticity ... and a wink. Tunes from the '20's and '30's like Jimmie Rodgers' Last Blue Yodel and Got My Mojo Workin' segue naturally in and out of Campbell's originals composed in the same vein. Enthusiasm, true communion with the rural blues spirits and a crisp live studio production make this an excellent blues record.”
~~ Tom Schulte, Detroit Music

“An old-time blues pace ... stomping and shouting, strumming his resonator guitar and blasting harp riffs. Good and mellow!”
~~ Ed Ivey, Blues Revue Magazine

“Sings and plays like he was reared in the Mississippi Delta. There are fifteen songs on this CD, and they are all stellar. The most impressive ... is John The Revelator. He uses the Dobro to its fullest potential, and the song just cooks. If you love the blues, you won't want to waste any time picking up this platter.”
~~ Keith "MuzikMan" Hannaleck

“An unbelievably fresh rendition of Got My Mojo Workin . . . real good stuff!”
~~ WITR-FM 89.7 Bad Dog Blues
