Acoustic blues pioneer CATFISH KEITH presents his 20th album, Land of the Sky, an all-new collection of inspired originals and reinvented classic songs by the singing brakeman and blue yodeler, Jimmie Rodgers, Bahamian guitar genius, Joseph Spence, the incredible Rev. Gary Davis, St. Louis blues piano master, Walter Davis, four-time singing Governor of Louisiana, Jimmie Davis (it’s a triple Davis record!), lonesome Texan Lil’ Son Jackson, and early blues founders, Memphis Minnie and Charley Patton.
This was recorded all solo, singing and playing on an array of guitars, and, on one cut, a ukulele. And stomping feet.
13 cuts include: Away Out on the Mountain, Bimini Gal, Samson & Delilah, Little Bitty Bird, Santa Claus Blues, Scoodle Oot ’n’ Doo, Red Nightgown, Bust ‘Em Down, Dirty Mother for You, Listen to the Mockingbird, Sit Down on the Banks of the River, Johnnie Mae, Some of These Days
