Whistling Past the Graveyard

by Eric Stanglin and the Juke Joint Heroes

A good-sized portion of Elmore James, Howlin' Wolf and Albert King, a pinch of Led Zeppelin and just of splash of Black Sabbath run through a blender. That's Whistling Past the Graveyard.

Album Notes
Whistling Past the Graveyard is the debut album of Oklahoma native Eric Stanglin and his band, The Juke Joint Heroes. The disc comprises ten original compositions plus two covers of blues classics by Son House and Skip James. Recorded in Spring 2012 at Reel Blues Studios in Revnice, Czech Republic, the album evokes a range of moods and subject matter while occasionally stepping outside the traditional bounds of the blues idiom.

Produced by Jan Korinek

All songs written by Eric Stanglin, except "Death Letter" by Edward James House, Jr. and "Devil Got My Woman" by Nehemiah Curtis James.

The band:
Eric Stanglin - rhythm/lead/slide guitar and vocals
Jan Cisar - bass
Jan Podzimek - drums
Jiri Marsicek - lead/rhythm guitar

In addition, Chicago bluesman Rene Trossman guests on lead guitar on "Get Your Hands Out of My Pockets", while Jan Korinek lays down his masterful Hammond B3 grooves on "Halo" and "Mistreater".

Eric Stanglin is a blues guitarist and vocalist from Oklahoma. Heavily influenced by classic blues artists such as Muddy Waters, Elmore James and Hound Dog Taylor, Eric's current band, The Juke Joint Heroes, takes a “keep it simple” approach to the blues. With a deep connection to roots music garnered through many years with the blues, Eric Stanglin and The Juke Joint Heroes play what can only be called the real stuff.
