Smokin Joe's maturity as a songwriter shines on this 12 song effort. The addition of Allister Bradley to the production team and the back-up vocals add depth to this effort. Joe has found his niche in the folk music genre with a sound that blends folk, country and rock. With original songs and co-writes as well as new arrangements of traditional folk standard Long Black Veil and Tim Hardin's If I Were a Carpenter he has arrived! Songs that touch on the universal themes of love as well as songs with a First Nations theme make this CD a great listen!
The fifteen songs reflect Smokin Joe's lifetime love affair with the blues. Enjoy the lead guitars of Waylon Wiseman, Fab Tranzer and Stan Gallant. Studios involved in the recording process include Mallczar Productions in Stephenville, Little Known in Lewisporte, JARE Recordings in Nashville and Wolf Studios in Kippens. Check out Kevin Carey's sax solo on No One Got The Blues paired with Waylon Wiseman improv guitar solo. Styles range from Chuck Berry to BB King to Fab Tranzer. For blues collectors, it's a must!
