For anyone who found the Michael Kiwanuka LP a disappointment (go on admit it).
Sun Studio reverb. Merle Haggard, Larry Jon Wilson, Pablo Gad. Townes` high noon couched in beat box dread. George Jackson, Donnie Fritts. Looking down an open road, a past soaked in kerosene. Looking for a brand new start. Keith Jarrett. Pharoah Sanders. Ned Doheny. The Faces in a lock-in at the dark end of James Carr`s street. Genius in the simplicity of the Blues of “Nothing & No One”.
Production assisted by everyone`s favourite A&R man, Ross Allen. Ross, if you`re reading, any chance of you selecting a few of these tracks for a “Dixie-Narco” type EP and getting them an extension by either Jeb`s long-term buddy Sherwood, or Weatherall. Preferably both.
