Little Bob – The Gift – 2CD
Without mistake, one can only say what a legend Little Bob is regarding Rock’n’Roll History. Neither success, glory, hits, airplay nor homage could ever testify enough of his contribution to music.
It all goes back to France’s main northern port. A tough mother of a rain-battered grey hole called Le Havre. Le Havre is the closest France ever gets to the look and feel of Liverpool or New Jersey : oil terminals, super tankers, refineries, chemical plants, warehouses, longshoremen, etc. Little Bob comes from here, and for those to whom such things matter, Little Bob’s Story features all the rights Rock & Roll ingredients. bob can out mean-street anyone.
Bob’s been at it for a while, playing every armpit France has to offer with his legendary band called Little Bob Story, Bob even ventured to England (300 gigs) attracting the “gunslingers” of British rock critics, opening “the road as he traveled it, playing all around Europe, singing on every single stage on this road from Irish pubs to Hells Angels bars, from universities to big festivals. Literally setting venues on fire ! Touring as if the fate of the free world depended on it.
Today, Lttle Bob leads a new band (since 10 years), released 4 solo’s albums, and his rock has changed. His music is drawing deeper into the roots of blues. A mixed up of tribal rock with burning emotion and powerful feeling.
The greatest have always considered Bob as one of their own. Recording with Steve Hunter (Mytch Ryder, Lou Reed, Alice Cooper ...), Charlie sexton (the Texas Boy Wonder), Kenny Margolis (of Mink Deville and Cracker), Dave Alvin (The Blasters) and on stage with Maria McKee & Benment Tench in Hollywood, Dr Feelgood, Beverly Joe Scott & Southside Johnny in Paris, Willy DeVille & Johnny Thunder in England.
Little Bob cherishes the way of singing of classic rock and blues singers from Little Richard or Howling Wolf to Eric Burdon. Bob’s Got the secret magic ingredient which makes all the difference in the heart of his fans : the innocence, the fervor & the ingenuity. Bob pulls it off, never blinks, never winks, he discards the “Camp”, easy way-out, gambles on the power of bare emotion, and comes out a winner. his look and tremondous voice make him unique to the audience.
Each time little Bob’s release a new album it is a good news, if anything because, as wise men say, “whenever a dreamer fulfills his dream, other dreamers ought to celebrate”.
