Chris Barber? He's a brit isn't he, and a contemporary of they guy who combo used to appear on Benny Hill's show - very trad jazz influenced - Kenny Ball.
Don't tell me Slaughter is in the same age group?
What does is it reminiscent of that I might I've heard?
I always remember the quote from Muddy Waters(?) about english blues guys 'Them white boys, they want to play the blues so bad. And they do play it so bad.
Slaughter is about half Chris Barber's age. But no spring chicken though.
The band has moved on a lot since the early trad revival days.
The record I referred to is reminiscent of some Buddy Guy, JJ Cale, Eric Clapton in his blues-ier moments.
The record has songs on it by John Hiatt, John Mayall, Taj Mahal, Ray Charles, JJ Cale, Tom Waits.
A cheap shot from Muddy Waters. He owes a late flowering of his career, and finances, to "them white boys" wanting to play his music, some very badly in the beginning it has to be admitted, and some well. A few.
