Robert Lowery - Earthquake Blues (REVIEW - Billboard)

Orleans 1017

Title is apt, since acoustic bluesman Lowery hails from shaker country in Santa Cruz, Calif. This informal but strong set of traditionally styled material, actually recorded on Lowery's back porch, demonstrates his abilities as a picker, a composer of witty original tunes, and a solid interpreter of oldies by Robert Johnson, Lightnin' Hopkins, and Tommy Johnson. Excellent for genre standard-bearers.
