California Delta Blues

by Coyote Slim & Colin Teurfs

Rockin' rhythm like a high-speed passenger train; bent lead notes like smokestack lightnin'; wailing harmonica like hellhounds on your trail; deep vocals that send cold chills down your spine; stories of love, hard times, and keepin' out the graveyard.

Album Notes
There have been times when people look at me and I know they are thinking, "Why would you have the blues?" After all, I'm a tall white-lookin' man in good health, I have all my teeth, and I tend to dress sharply. I should be on top of the socio-economic ladder, working in a high-rise and overseeing a multinational corporation. Well, take a listen to my songs. I'm not going to say that everything in them is exactly true, but I've lived through times where I didn't know how I was going to pay for my next meal. At time I didn't know how I would put gas in my car and if I should live out of it and sell my guitars; I've found love and I lost it; I rarely have a day without some kind of pain (back, shoulder, or heart); I've been unemployed so long that I wondered if I would ever get a job again, when I finally got a job the house I was staying in burnt to the ground. Everything I sing in track three, "This House is Burnin' Down," is truth, except that there was no unearthly voice urging me to get up and out, but rather a housemate/friend of mine. This isn't to say I've had the worst life -- I've been lucky in that my family and friends have been there for me in times of need, but that doesn't make my troubles any less valid. I play the blues and I've lived the blues. My partner on this album, Colin Teurfs, hasn't had as much trouble as I have, being a younger man, but he's had his share of 'em for sure. Like me, he has had gear stolen and dealt with his share of car troubles. And oh yes, can he play a damn fine harmonica, too! He's not just accompanying my music on this album, his harmonica playing makes it into something finer. Now, I wouldn't want you to think that because of all our hardships our music is sad. At times my music can be nostalgic, and I do sing about heartbreak, but mostly the blues is about telling you about the trouble you're having and how you're moving on. Sometimes it's silly innuendo. Sometimes it's about the irony of life. Often it's about sex -- because sex is one good thing to look forward in this hard life. The blues is about all aspects of life, and I think that you will relate. I hope you enjoy all the parts of this album: my guitar playing and singing, Colin's harmonica work, and the stories I tell. I hope someday we can play for you in your town. -- Coyote Slim
