Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2014-06-12Keb Mo's Bluesamericana marks the 20th anniversary of his land mark self-titled release. It also represents his best recording since 1994 & many could argue his best to date. The CD begins with what many have called the best bad-luck song ever penned, "The Worst Is Yet To Come." The tracks "Do It Right" and "For Better or Worse" deal with devotion and marriage and are reflective of a tough time Keb was personally going through. "I'm Going to Be Your Man" is classic Keb where he is in pursuit of a women and rejection does not fit the plan. "The Old Me Better" starts with a New Orleans Dixieland sound and is a standout track showing that changing yourself to fit a given mold may not be your best choice. Keb's laid back way of relating personal struggles that many of us have endured makes him a favorite within the blues community and with his fans. This disc should be an award winner during next year's Grammy's & Blues awards. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
