Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
1969-12-31CURTIS SALGADO CLEAN GETAWAY After receiving the news 2 years ago that Curtis needed a complete Liver transplant & a cancerous growth had been found in his lungs many had left this great soul singer for dead. His doctors told him he would die within 8 months without the operation. The music community knew how much of a loss this would be & rallied to raise the funds for Curtis to have this procedure. On Clean Getaway Curtis pays his fellow musicians & his listening audience back with the best CD of his career. This is pure Soul and R&B magic. The title track is a dedication to one of Curtis inspirations the late great Johnny “Guitar” Watson”. “Alone” exemplifies the sounds of Memphis soul & no other singer can cover Al Green the way Curtis does on “Let’s Get Married”. “20 Years of B.B. King” is a catchy track where the entire song is made up of titles of B.B. King Songs and expressions. The ending track is a rocking version of Eric Clapton’s “Bottle of Red Wine” The backing band on this Disc is the Phantom Band that has recorded with many including Taj Mahal & Bonnie Raitt. The Great Jon Cleary from New Orleans adds some excellent piano on most tracks. Let’s all celebrate that Curtis Salgado made a Clean Getaway & has given us an album that celebrates life itself.
