Lacy Gibson – Crying For My Baby
This CD is an early effort by Lacy Gibson. "Crying For My Baby" is a session recorded in 1977 under the supervision of R&B patriarch Ralph Bass. We find Lacy showcasing various blues styles in a relaxed atmosphere, one which could be described as tastefully uncluttered. The disc kicks off in high gear with "You'd Better Be Sure"; Gibson's stinging (but not over-driven) guitar leads smoothly sailing over the shuffling beats. Lacy demonstrates with proficiency how to achieve the maximum from one's instrument without ever having to lean on volume or effects as a crutch. A nice solid effort from a classy Chicago blues-man and his backing cast of seasoned vets! He delivers the goods!
