Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Eugene "Hideaway" Bridges

Eugene "Hideaway" Bridges

2007-06-23

It is apt that the cover of this disc features singer/guitarist Eugene Hideaway Bridges holding a microphone instead of a guitar. While his reputation was forged as a first rate guitarist, this disc focuses instead on his rich, soulful vocals in a variety of settings including gospel, "Piece of the Mountain", folk, "Life Has No Meaning", and late night blues, "Love Got the Best of Me". Charles Brown and occasionally Al Green come to mind as his melted butter voice caresses the songs to life. Breaking the soul vibe is the gritty "Ain’t Got Time", the saucy "Big Legged Woman" and the T-Bone Walker inspired guitar work out, "Man and His Guitar". Smitty
