Erin Harpe & The Delta Swingers

Love Whip Blues

2014-11-03

Erin Harpe & her Delta Swingers breathe new life into 1930-1940's swing & Delta Blues. This Chiasmic vocalist from New England, leads her four piece Delta Swingers through four original tracks as well as five blues covers and the most unique take on the John Prine/ Bonnie Raitt classic "Angel From Montgomery" you have ever heard. In addition to Erin's exceptional soulful vocals and guitar picking, Richard Rosenblatt's harmonica brings the Delta sounds to life throughout this entire disc. Erin describes the sounds on Love Whip Blues as a Blues/Roots/Americana cocktail. She sings songs about good luck in a soulful way on Good Luck Baby, she drives you down the tracks of the Delta on "The M&O Blues" & "Charles River Delta Blues. Erin will also get your Booty shaking on the swinging sounds of "The Delta Swing" & "Virtual Booty Blues". Once you have tasted Erin's unique Delta Blues cocktail, you will be asking for a second round. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
