Liberty Leg

Add Date: March 30

Artist: Liberty Leg

Album: Ginger Lee


Genre: Rock/Blues/Roots

Comments: This album is refreshingly raw in music and production. The promoter says, "The music is new, yet timelessly rooted in American traditional blues, country and New Orleans street music... Richeson's enormous bass/baritone voice rolls through history, love, loss and yearning with the conviction and energy of an old-time brimstone evangelical bent on saving his flock from damnation in the style of Captain Beefheart crossed with Screamin' Jay Hawkins."

Ginger Lee is what the promoters says it is: honest, huge, and timeless. I am drawn in by the guitar riffs that are purely old-time blues. I think track 7, "Heavy on the Road," is a good sample of of what's to find here. With that, start with 7, 2 and 11.

Thanks a ton for the information, sorry I screwed it up in the first place. I just made the adjustments to the post. I look forward to hearing more from these folks.
