New Earth Blues
This is a very deep record and it has some very personal meaning to it. I think Craig really lays it down here and opens his heart. This is probably the best record he has done yet. I think it looks at the world today through eyes of a regular guy, and put to music by a not-so-regular player. Craig is an excellent musician and needs to be heard. He plays like Jimi, Sings like Johnny, and writes like his 70's heroes. Great record Craig, I have been on board for a long time.
