Rott'n Dan & Lightnin' Willy - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, from Rott'n Dan & Lightnin' Willy and it's a set of cool modern interpretations of Pre-war, Piedmont, Country blues and compatible self written tracks. Opening with Mississippi John Hurt's, I'm Satisfied, Lightnin' Willy Ryan on lead vocal and guitar lays down a great finger picking style with Rott'n Dan Shinnan on harmonica. Cool opener. Original track, Coliseum Station Blues has really strong bones with potent vocals by Willy giving plenty of room for the excellent harp work of Dan. Lead Water Blues is a spry rag with plenty of movement. Ryan on lead vocal and guitar really gives Dan a nice track to showcase. One of my favorite tracks on the release. John Lee Williamson's Good Gravy is another great rag with terrific vocals by Dan (working in some great harp riffs and hollers) and tight finger work by Willie. Wrapping the release is Mercedes Benz, an excellent acoustic guitar and harp jam. This is a nicely crafted release showing a lot of skill and enthusiasm. Very nice.
