Mojo Buford - Harpslinger
Recorded in analog, without benefit of overdubs or gimmicks, this is close as you'll get to a truly live recording. Mojo is backed by members of Rockin' Daddy & the Rough Cuts (Dan Schwalbe - guitar, Jack Taylor - bass, and Greg Shuck - drums) as well as one-handed blues pianist Mike "the Hook" Deutsch, and Curtis Blake on second harp.
On several tracks, this line-up is joined by Teddy Morgan on second guitar and R.J. Mischo and third harp. The effect is a supurb tappestry of interwoven melodies, each delightfully adding to the thick ensemble sound. Highly recommended for knowledgable blues aficiandos.
Mojo's original lyrics will crack you up, and the musicianship is outstanding. Worth looking for!
