ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On The Morning After, Edmonton, Alberta's "Doctor of the Blues" Marshall Lawrence takes listeners on a journey that showcases a side of the blues where space and melody are paramount. It's a recording that's steeped in Marshall's reverence for acoustic blues masters, yet abandons just enough form to embrace a fresh approach to an old tradition. Featuring Marshall's raw Delta bottleneck sound, The Morning After is a breath of fresh Mississippi juke joint air for blues lovers of all persuasions.

The Sunday Night Blues Project describes Marshall's music and playing....
"..... It's still delta-style country blues, but new. In fact, I think Lawrence is following in the footsteps of some very important artists like Bernie Pearl and Corey Harris and Taj Mahal in the way that he is at once historical musicologist and contemporary interpreter...."


"The Morning After" has been receiving widespread critical acclaim in the blues world. Here are some quotes.

1) "The Morning After" named "Best Acoustic Release - Canada" by Blues Underground Network

2) "The Morning After" named one of the Top 20 Best Blues Albums released in 2008 by Norman Davis - "Midnight Flyer" Blues Radio Show - KKIT-FM, Taos, NM; KEGR-FM, Concord, CA; KYOU.com, San Francisco and FatMusicRadio.com

3) The Morning After Review by Bernard Boyat in Le Cri du Coyote Number 107 where The Morning After receives a top notch review and the coveted “Cri du Coeur” (Cry of the Heart)from Bernard Boyat

"Just the photograph of the superb guitars (there must be a National in the trio) on the back cover makes you want to buy the CD because one tells oneself that with such instruments one can only make good music. And, a listen confirms that impression. Marshall makes sparse Rockin' Country blues of prime quality (especially Freight train and Shake it), marked by a pause in the middle with the slow Mockingbird Blues and Long Time Gone, and another with Gotta Change Our Ways just before a beautiful conclusion with Light Rain Blues, with a hint of Chuck Berry, and Ida Mae. If his previous CD's are of the same caliber, I regret not having discovered him earlier. Bernard Boyat."

4) "Przemek Draheim, Polish Blues Radio Host, www.blues.pl/draheim"

“The cover of the album says it all - three gorgeous reso-guitars, a treat for both eyes and ears. The sound of your guitar is crisp and hard hitting and when you play slide it sounds so good. Technical skills are important but feeling is essential, you have both of those qualities…. Together with interesting original songs and very
good sound/production quality "The Morning After" should easily please deep blues fans. I like it!”

5) Keith Castleberry, The "L.A." Blues Cruse, WNSI 105.9 FM, Atmore, Alabama

“I was very, very impressed…. This is a very good album”

6) Mike Flowers, Producer, Mystic Mile, KZUM 89.3 FM Lincoln, Nebraska

"Played 3 cuts yesterday and the phones went bonkers!! Keep up the great work that you do!!"

7) Massimo Ferro, Radio Voce Spazio, Italy

"The Morning After is a fine and pleasant album, very well played and sung and with good versions of songs by other artists as well as some very fine new songs from your own pen. I enjoy your work a lot and in fact I immediately started playing it in my radio show of American roots based music at Radio Voce Spazio”

8) GLT Blues, Illinois, USA

He's a native of Edmonton, Alberta but plays the bottleneck guitar as if he grew up in the Mississippi delta. Lawrence penned 9 of the 13 songs on this CD, and they stand up with his covers of Tommy Johnson and Willie McTell. Light touches of mandolin and banjo and his use of space on this CD give The Morning After a fresh sound to acoustic blues.
