REVEREND FREAKCHILD

Chaos and Country Blues (The Best of Reverend Freakchild)

2013-01-19

Don't let the words "The Best of" included in this album title deceive you into thinking that this is a greatest hits album. It is all new stuff. Chaos and Country Blues consists of covers and traditional blues arranged by Reverend Freakchild. Don't let the fake obituary on the inside cover fool you, either. Reverend Freakchild is currently living in New York. Chaos and Country Blues is acoustic blues, performed by Reverend Freakchild (Floyd Graves) on resonator guitar and harmonica, with occasional guests on bansuri (track 12), and upright bass (tracks 3, 4, 5, 6). If you like traditional acoustic blues, this might be the album for you. Rebecca Ruth
