Album Notes
Expertly performed and arranged ensemble songs and instrumentals with several acoustic blues thrown in for variety. These guitar-driven tunes show Madis' roots in the 1970s Chicago blues scene, as well as his jazz and Southern rock influences. The acoustic, Piedmont/ragtime guitar tunes are based strongly in rural blues tradition, but reflect influences from urban blues, jazz and Hawaiian slack key. Madis' well-known bottleneck slide playing appears throughout, often paired with acoustic or electric guitar. Most notable are vocal performances, which are the finest to be found on any of Madis' recordings.

"..few in town can rival Eric's tone on guitar and his vocals are clear, emotive and vibrant....Eric's style goes from deep blues to quite jazzy, showing tremendous versatility on both acoustic and electric guitar...remarkable talent....Very highly recommended."
