Tim Elliott And The Troublemakers
These are the sounds from an era when acoustic blues was taking on amplification. Not an "unplugged" album, but one firmly rooted in the tradition of blues and gospel. There is no overkill here, yet the treatments are totally loaded with conviction. Tim Elliott re-introduces the drive and vitality that was there the first time around on gems by Hooker, Howlin' and Johnson. The recording is relaxed, and you won't find any bleached copies on this CD. Tim Elliott and The Troublemakers are one of the unique examples, and living testaments, of why the music, nowadays, is very much alive and well. Talented artists bringing emotion, craftsmanship and spontaneity on home.
