My baby came to me this morning and said I'm kinda confused. She said "If me and B.B. King was both drownin', which one would you choose?" And I said "Oh Baby, Oh Baby, Oh Baby, I ain't never heard you play no blues" - Steve Goodman, The I Ain't Never Heard You Play No Blues

Mr. Vesey may've been on his way over here to tip us off, but I'm so excited I had to beat him to it!!! I've already ordered mine. Another masterpiece I'm sure!! One of my favorite modern day blues artists (he and Geremia are at the top of the heap IMO).

I wanted to give a quick follow up review....
I own 4 or 5 other SJ albums and I can definitely say without a doubt: This one's my favorite. Hard to decide really cuz they're all great...
I'm fiending for a ladder braced 12 string even more now. He plays one o' these (built by Ralph Bown) on 3 tracks.
Del Rey's on 3 tracks adding her usual excellence, but the rest is all Steve (with some occasional overdubbing of mando on top of guitar).
There's even some slide mando on here!
Some excellent originals along with a few old faves.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Thanks brosna. Great album cover. Good to see Steve seems to have mastered how to sit in a chair. I seem to remember he was quite dyslexic about that 'hitting the chair on the way down while clutching musical instrument' thing, one riotous evening at the weenie house...  ;)

I have nearly all SJ's other records and will certainly be buying this one.

Thanks, Rivers.  I knew there had to be a better place for this...

Steve (and Del) have been here to Oz a number of times... they played one time down the road at The Heritage Hotel (Bulli, NSW) and came over for a visit and breakfast the next morning. Good entertainment and good music by some good people.
