Old Gray Mule will singe the eyebrows off your face and warm your winter blues.
New Release: A Day in MS, A Night in TX out now to celebrate the Australian Tour!
To celebrate Old Gray Mule’s first visit to Australia we’re releasing another album full of their loose and raggedy blues boogie. Recorded during two session on a recent tour across the USA ‘A Day in Mississippi. A night in Texas’ is bucking with a sense of rawness that will make your pants cry for mercy. don’t believe us? Listen to this:
Maybe it was the delerium produced by too much time in the tour van. Maybe it was the mid-summer heat. Whatever it was, the two sessions included in this Long Player are well worth getting your wallet out. For this album C.R. Humphrey (Guitars) teams up with C.W. Ayon (Drums, Vocals) and a host of Mississippi blues greats.
The first four tracks come from a session held at the home of Mississippi Hil Country stalwart Bill Abel. These tracks are intense, gritty and down right filthy contribution to that great blues tradition. The low down and sparse version of I’m Bad Like Jesse James is one of the best slow blues I’ve heard in a while. check it.
The remainder of the LP is a variety of tracks taken from a live set at the 2nd annual Junior Kimbrough Birthday Bash. This set is the culmination of a tour that took the boys thousands of miles and you can hear it. The grooves are tight and low down and the banter is worth a listen too. Bring it!
