BB & The Blues Shacks – Breaking Point
Germany's top blues band is back shortly after their 30th anniversary with a brand new studio album. A CD in a three-part digisleeve on RHYTHM BOMB.
Around 4,000 live performances worldwide, multiple winners of the German Blues Awards, German Record Critics' Prize, 16 albums, nominated as "Best Band" or "Artist of the Year" not only by German, but also by British and French media, shows in more than 20 countries - the Hildesheim quintet around the brothers MICHAEL and ANDREAS ARLT has achieved incredible things. And with "Breaking Point" they simply continue their proven recipe for success.
With many impressively stylish original compositions and a few selected cover songs, they celebrate and transcend the blues of the 40s to 50s, as found in the hotspots Chicago, Louisiana, New Orleans or Memphis and also create a close connection to the soul of the 60s with astonishing ease.
The 15 songs on "Breaking Point" are in world-class format and are absolutely indispensable for every blues fan.
