Seasick Steve

Seasick Steve

“Thanks for taking time to listen to an old man,” Steve croaks on the countrified singalong “Long Long Way” and those who find his hoary ol’ bluesman persona hokey may well wince at the self-deprecation. Despite his hints at being nothing but a doggone bygone, this (his fifth studio album) confirms him as being well worth our time. The lyrical wisdom is as homespun and simple as his famous three-string guitar but the musicianship is deft enough to set things smouldering: as the storming title track demonstrates, he remains an old dog in no need of new tricks.
