Catfish’s disc of deep blues and roots originals and timeless country blues gems pulses with life and demonstrates why he’s been one of the most original voices in the world of acoustic blues guitar for over three decades. From the hypnotic, rolling 12-string opener “If I Could Holler” to chiming, rattling acoustic guitar twang-outs like “Gonna Live That Life,” Catfish takes his unique vision of solo guitar, vocals and stomping feet to new heights. This is his 11th solo album, recorded live in the studio, ringing with pure heartbeat rhythms, expressive, virtuoso guitar and infectious, soul-deep lyrics, played on four different Nationals and two acoustic guitars.
“For Catfish Keith, the resonator guitar is an organic extention of his body, an instrument he plays intuitively and with absolute authority. Manhandling Delta vamps, artfully fingerpicking rag-influenced Piedmont patterns, and languidly chording ballads, Catfish is one of the premier prewar-style guitarists recording today.” – Living Blues
