Eddie Kirkland - The Devil And Other Blues Demons
Eddie Kirkland has long straddled the fence between bluesy soul and soulful blues. He was at a low point when he recorded for Trix in 1973, but this session recharged him musically, if not sales-wise. Whether Kirkland is doing silly numbers, offering taut blues licks or giving examples of his philosophy, he finds creative ways to utilize the standard 12-bar scheme. ~ Ron WynnLP has been rereleased on cd and is available at Amazon.
