Catfish is back with this highly-acclaimed disc, his tenth, right here at home on Fish Tail Records. This is one of his most fully-realized recordings to date. Tracks were laid down pure and live on three hot summer nights this August. Catfish sings, stomps, and plays seven different guitars; two acoustics and five new Nationals, including his two baritones and his exciting first appearance with the 12-string tricone.
This album features Keith solo, and powerful duos with the “big bottom” stand-up bass of Marty Christensen on half the cuts. Songs come from deep down in the treasure trove, and include originals as well as songs re-invented from Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Leadbelly, Cannon’s Jug Stompers, The Otis Brothers, Dock Boggs, Blind Willie Johnson, Skip James and much more.
13 songs include: Gonna Get My Hambone Boiled, Lightning Flash ~Thunder Roll, Salty Thang, When I Was a Cowboy, A True Friend is Hard To Find, Put Your Bucket in Your Basket, Blotted Out My Mind, Baby I’m a Fine Artiste, Deep Sea Moan, Pile of Plates and a Carving Knife, Little Sweet Pea, That Ain’t No Way for Me To Get Along, Going to German
