Album Review

Last Time Around [coll] – [Mississippi Records]

mickeyslim   8/1/2012   12-inch, Blues

More blues from Mississippi Records! This is part three in a collection of gospel themed blues recorded from the 50’s to the 80’s (Life is a Problem, Oh Graveyard, You Can’t Hold Me Always). Raw-gritty field recordings, to playful piano bumps, there is surprisingly a lot of diversity on the album.

The A-side is all kind of upbeat, with the lyrics dealing with Heaven, the lord, salvation, etc. Then the B-side gets a little more dirty with a few songs just guitar and vocal work, reminds me of the old Delta bluesmen who would constantly switch from blues to gospel, gospel to blues, over and over again, so they retained the perfect mixture of the two. Make sure to?? check out “Fire in my Bones,” it’s exactly what I’m talking about. Drop the needle already..
