I accidentally got my weeks mixed up and was supposed to review this album last week and John Lennon this week. Oh well. This album was surprising to me because it is by far the oldest album we have listened to and far from Rock & Roll. This blues album was released in 1990 but is full of songs recorded between 1936-1939 by Robert Johnson.
When the album first opens you can hear the crackle of vinyl which instantly made me imagine I was sitting next to a record player somewhere listening to this album. But that is where the enjoyment of this album stopped. I like variety and to me, each song sounded exactly the same. Only one song stuck out for me, Me & The Devil Blues and that’s because I know I have heard it somewhere before. Not the Eric Clapton cover, in a movie but I don’t remember which one.
I could possibly picture myself listening to this on a rainy day curled up with a book and cup of coffee and using this album as the background music at is very laid back and relaxing. But overall, not my thing.
