ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
80-some years of hard livin’ and lovin’, fightin’ and cuttin’ has led to this: a brand new album of whiskey-soaked blues on a brand new label - the man they call “T-Model Ford” on Mudpuppy Recordings.

T-Model (a.k.a. The Taildragger) hails from Arthur “Big Boy” Crudup territory in Forest, Mississippi. He spent years in Clarksdale and currently resides in Greenville, Mississippi. Through his long and storied life, T-Model has been married five times, survived a stint at Parchman Farm and served two years on a Tennessee chain gang. He’s also played a bit of blues along the way and is as likely to be found playing huge European festivals as he is harassing the ladies at his favorite juke joint, Red’s Lounge, where this CD was recorded (live to tape with no overdubs).

Joining T-Model on “jack daniel time” is Terry “Harmonica” Bean – now in his late forties – who started his professional blues career backing up T-Model but quit him after one too many fights broke out at their gigs. Drummer Lee Williams is a veteran of the Clarksdale blues scene and another regular at Red’s. On hand as a very special guest was one of T-Model’s first drummers (and ex-Jelly Roll King), the legendary Sam Carr.

In between band sessions, T-Model also took time to play a few solo acoustic numbers – his first non-electric recordings ever. The session, itself, was predictably chaotic with rain occasionally finding its way through the leaky juke joint roof and on to the drum set and assorted electronics, but the Taildragger’s spirit never dampened. After all, as T-Model (and Mudpuppy Recordings) will tell you, it’s “jack daniel time”!

SPECIAL BONUS: This CD is conceived and organized in the two-sided record album tradition and is pressed on black plastic "vinyl” for vintage look.

Un Jack , un !!! et remettez nous ça bartender
A 80 balais et plus, ben il sonne fort et clair le papy, tu sens bien que coté verdure y’a encore ce qu’il faut et les 5 mariages, les bastons et autres marrades du samedi soir et pas que !! Parce que l’on pourrait causer taule ou histoire de gang… l’ont pas altéré les neurones, ni la verve de notre gaillard.
Un gaillard que l’on ne présente plus, ce type est devenu, au fil du temps une légende du blues, particulièrement du Hill Mississippi Country, T-Model Ford aka James Lewis Carter Ford n’en finit plus de nous enchanter les oras et profitant d’un changement de crémerie, ben oui c’est plus Fat Possum mais Mudpuppy Recording qui nous permet de toucher et d’écouter cette superbe rondelle, se lâche au sein de son Juke Joint favori , le Red’s Lounge, pour nous régaler sur une suite de Mississippi blues, capturé et restitué à l’ancienne, pas de bidouille, rien à l’horizon, juste papy, sa voix et sa guitare sur 5 titres, grande première que ces 5 titres c’est le premier enregistrement de l’ancien en solo acoustique, oui monsieur !! Ou pour le reste papy et ses potes Terry « Harmonica » Bean à l’harmo… Comment t’avais deviné ?? t’es fort dis donc !!, Sam Carr le vieux complice sur les gamelles ou Lee Williams un pilier de la scène de Clarksdale et puis sur un titre Bill Abel à la six cordes.
Un enregistrement live qui disent ?? Veux bien, mais on entend pas le public, l’était soit dehors à jouer aux boules ou alors total scotché par la voix et le charisme du papy, c’est vrai que question envoûte l’est fort le vieux, son jeu total dépouillé dégage une puissance incroyable et te procure un sentiment de plénitude que seul peut te procurer le magique, surtout les pièces acoustiques, une maxi régalade…. t’as l’impression qu’il joue dans ton nourrin direct, rien que pour toi, qu’l’est avec toi…. la prise de son est canon même si l’enregistre s’est pas faite dans le confort optimum…
Les titres ben c’est du T-Model avec des pièces comme « I love you, Babe » ou « Red’s houseparty » ou le somptueux « Mistreatin’ woman » et pis des reprises comme les inusables « Big Boss Man », « Rock me baby » et « Killing Floor » de qui vous savez, pis z ‘avez qu’à chercher si vous savez pas…. Un régal de Mississippi rural, de delta blues pis une ch’tite chouille de Hill country….
Ce cd est inclassable, seule chose que je peux vous dire c’est qu’il va fondre dans l’nourrin du Tonton…
Un Jack , un !!! et remettez nous ça bartender…..

The Taildragger Returns!
Suffice it to say: If you like T-Model Ford, you’ll dig this record; if you like raw blues in general, you’ll dig this record; if you like moonshine, dirty old men or knife fights, you’ll dig this record. A great record. And that's for g*ddamn sure.

An essential purchase.
This is the blues I dig the most. With so many “guitar hero wannabes” paying today and all that plastic production it is extremely refreshing to get back to the real thing, deep blues played by people who live rough and play rough. T-Model Ford is one of the last real bluesmen, real, not authentic as there is a big difference between those two types, at least in my book. His approach to the music is as honest as it gets. When he sings his original songs his voice sounds rich and can only belong to somebody who went through a lot. When he covers classic blues songs, he makes them his own, like with “Rock Me Baby” or “That’s Alright Mama”. Plus, his backing combo is fabulous with sensational Sam Carr on drums! All in all “Jack Daniel Time” is the next best thing to being there, in a small juke joint, with T-Model playing and singing his heart out. For serious blues enthusiasts this is an essential purchase.
