ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Big Highway", the remarkable sixth solo studio disc from outstanding blues/rock axeslinger Craig Erickson features 11 awesome tracks (59 minutes) of top-shelf, world-class, bluesy, soul-powered, heavy guitar rock that burns brightly and is definitely his most complete, accomplished and satisfying disc to date. A classic, timeless bluesy heavy guitar masterpiece.

Craig Erickson is an amazing, gifted blues/rock guitarist who is a certifiable fretboard axeripper supreme. He is one of the best, most underrated bluesy heavy guitar axemasters on the 3rd stone from the sun. On "Big Highway" (his second disc for GROOVEYARD RECORDS, an indie label dedicated to outstanding TOTAL GUITAR music), Erickson spotlights his songwriting skills, using his fluid and fiery guitar work to get the blues/rock point across. Right from the killer opening track: "River Keeps on Rollin’" (a ballsy roadhouse stompin’ bluesy heavy guitar riff groove) on thru to the last awesome track: Stratus (a mind-blowing, bad-ass, over-the-top "live in the studio" tribute to brother Tommy Bolin), the "Big Highway" disc cuts deep, hard & bluesy and never lets the listener down. It’s no secret, there is something for everyone on the "Big Highway" disc. It is an incredible, focused, solid, dynamic musical document from this amazing, prolific axemaster and is an awesome follow-up to the excellent "Shine" disc released on Grooveyard Records several years back. All the way from Cedar Rapids, Iowa straight to your cd player, Craig Erickson really delivers the blues/rock guitar goods on the "Big Highway" disc.

"Big Highway" is a phenomenal bluesy heavy guitar disc that is HIGHLY recommended to fans of HENDRIX (long live the musical spirit of JIMI), ROBIN TROWER, FRANK MARINO, TOMMY BOLIN, S.R.V., JOHNNY WINTER, RORY GALLAGHER, ERIC GALES, LANCE LOPEZ, JOE BONAMASSA, WALTER TROUT, WARREN HAYNES, ERIC JOHNSON, INDIGENOUS, DOYLE BRAMHALL, BUDDAHEADS, TONY SPINNER, SKY HIGH, MICHAEL KATON, JEFF HEALEY, CHRIS AARON, VAN WILKS, and other killer blues/rock axemasters who know what time of day it is when it comes down to serious heavy guitar riffage. Fans of Craig Erickson’s many previous discs and guest spots will be blown away completely by the deep, bluesy heavy guitar magic found on the amazing "Big Highway" disc. And if you have never heard of Craig Erickson, "Big Highway" is the perfect place to start.

If you love killer bluesy heavy guitar music and need a new fix, do yourself a favor and get on the boogie train & dig in deep, musical brothers and sisters. With twin barrels burning and a six-string shotgun full of groove, take a ride with Craig Erickson down the "Big Highway" of life. This is one outstanding bluesy heavy guitar trip you won’t soon forget.

Big Highway
I think this is Craig at his best. The record is filled with greatness. He showcases his chops and ability to turn an a great song nto an excellent song. a couple of my favorites are Matter of Time, and Through with You. The record ends with a fantastic track called Stratus, which Craig takes into the ozone. I love the record and will buy another Grooveyard release. this record is a great score for the collection.

BIG HIGHWAY
I am somewhat familiar with Craig Erickson and as always his music delivers. There is amazing guitar work on this record, filled with very emotional solos and very deep lyrics. Craigs' guitar playing says it all and I certainly can hear what the brther is saying through his instrument. Thanks Grooveyard for a fantastic record....
