ERIC LINDELL

WEST COAST DRIFTER

2011-08-30

West Coast Drifter is a combination of two earlier self released titles "Between Motion and Rest" released in 2010 and "Cazadero" released earlier this year. It is our great fortune that MC Records discovered these soul drenched crescent city treasures and released them as this terrific 18 track double disc. Eric's voice is perfectly suited to cover the soul of New Orleans, mixed with some R&B that can shame most of today's popular artists. In addition to the soul pouring from his voice, Eric's guitar can also deliver some incredible heart felt and soulful licks. Eric brought some of his friends along for this disc including Delbert McClinton on the opening track Sentimental Lover and the great Ivan Neville on all tracks of Disc two. Eric has been a favorite of the New Orleans music scene for many years and with this release the blues man who can deliver a musical roots stew should find his way into your home as a musical guest you wont want to leave.
