Mighty Mo Rodgers – Redneck Blues
At the turn of the new millenium emerged a blues mighty prophet who made up for the genre’s dwindling spirituality: Mo Rodgers. Thanks to a revolutionary album entitled Blues Is My Wailin’ Wall, Mo recounted the whole history of the blues, from the slave trade of yesteryears to the current bluesploitation days. A second outing (Red, White and Blues) was soon in the works to cash in on this success, and it became an instant hit with the blues crowd. So, here is now « Redneck Blues », the third part of the Mighty Mo Rodgers Blues Anthology ! Rather than a fatalistic, somber vision of the world, Mo provides us with an optimistic perception of what could easily be if we all accepted to see things as they are, instead of trying to blindfold ourselves in a sterile attitude of denial. Along with their poetic intuitiveness, this sense of hope is probably the blues’ most enduring legacy. A sense of hope and perspective that makes Maurice Rodgers one of today’s greatest living bards, no less.
