Diddie Wa Diddie
Diddie Wa Diddie is a colletion of songs that range from old blues to traditionals and originals. These are songs that John has played for most of his career as a solo artist. His rag-tag style comes through on this CD like he's sitting in your living room. People that catch his gigs will love the way this album is produced. His casual yet personal style is embedded in each and every song. John's Chicago blues style of Blind Blake sets the mood from the start. His originals swing from slow grooves to bluegrass. The tongue-in-cheek song, My Lincoln, shows his unique sense of humor in his writings. Hard Time Killin' Floor Blues leaves you with the feeling that this man should have been recording in the 1930's. It's all here but the sound of the needle in the groove. His arrangements show the close attention that was paid to get just the right flavor and feeling in each song. If you liked the sound track to Brother Where Art Thou, you will love this CD. THIS IS CHICKEN SOUP FOR YOUR EARS!!!
