ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This CD was released in late October 2005. It was awarded with the "German Music Critic's Award" for best Blues CD release (PREIS DER DEUTSCHEN SCHALLPLATTEN KRITIC, Berlin, February 2006).
By January 2006 it had climbed to NUMBER FOUR on the US Blues Radio Charts (as reported by Living Blues Magazine). GLAD YOU'RE MINE opened numerous doors for the band, including a recording contract with the prestigious Chicago-based label Delmark Records. In fact, soon after this studio recording, Delmark released a Mississippi Heat LIVE CD and DVD called ONE EYE OPEN - LIVE AT ROSA'S LOUNGE, CHICAGO" (DELMARK DE-783 and DELMARK DVD 1783). Both are available for sale through cdbaby.com

Here is what the critics say:
PRESS REACTION/REVIEWS
GLAD YOU’RE MINE

“Lacocque has achieved the hardest thing of all, which is to find a distinctive ‘voice’ on the blues harp. He has masterful command of tone and can belt out riffs or stabs when needed but is at his best when taking a lead and constructs beautiful, musical lines, even when in strict blues territory. … Intriguingly, Lacocque achieves an almost clarinet like fluidity at times. … [GLAD YOU’RE MINE] gives singer Inetta Visor the scope to use her fabulous voice. Her vocals are powerful but not strident. She has some gentle qualities in her voice too, and can easily deliver the spread of material on this album. …
I like it very much.”
BLUES NEWS (NZ),

“Just wanted to let you know that GLAD YOU’RE MINE is one of the best CDs to come out this year. WC Handy material … it deserves to be heard by all and I dawn sure will do my part to make sure that this happens. I would travel a long ways to see MISSISSIPPI HEAT, one of the best blues bands out there.”
MARK T SMITH – DISC JOCKEY/THE BLUES PILOT (KJLU, MISSOURI)

“Mississippi Heat at its best! WOW, what a great sound. Delightful! … I could hardly imagine you could come up with something better than ‘Footprints On The Ceiling’, but you managed to do so!”
PETER OTTENHEIM [HOLLAND] – FESTIVAL PROMOTER, UNSOLICITED E-MAIL

“Highly recommended for an accurate taste of the Blues that is being played in the home of the Blues.”
BLUESWAX (2006)

“Lacocque is a solid harp blower with fine tone an vibrato. (He) raises eyebrows as a soloist.
LIVING BLUES (JAN/FEB 2006)

“Pierre Lacocque clearly is carrying on the Jr. Wells tradition as a stylish, finesse-oriented harpist.”
CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

“GLAD YOU’RE MINE is filled with unabashed music, straight from Chicago’s smoky blues bar. … Undoubtedly, Lacocque is one of the best harp players on today’s scene. … Likewise, Visor pours her very being into every note. … This band has ardor.”
BLUESARTSTUDIO (www.bluesartstudio.at, 2006)

“GLAD YOU’RE MINE is an awesome CD. I can see you guys getting all kinds of awards, including a Grammy. You guys have done an awesome job. This could be the Blues CD of the year.”
JOE HARLESS – CEO, SHAKER MICROPHONES (DEC 2005)

FRENCH REVIEWS:

“Apres de longues années d’auto-production, riches en albums de qualité salues unanimement par la critique et par les amateurs de blues moderne et authentique, sauce Chicago, Mississippi Heat a enfin trouve une compagnie confiante en son potentiel et dans le talent incontestable de Pierre Lacocque, non seulement en tant que leader, compositeur fécond, mais aussi en tant qu’harmoniciste exceptionnel et original. … ce groupe majeur du Chicago blues actuel reste un des plus performants, chacun de ses albums est un must pour les amateurs. [L’] important c’est le talent inaltérable de Pierre Lacocque qui transcende les productions de MISSISSIPPI HEAT par ses compositions originales, son jeu d’harmonica impérial tout en subtilité et en puissance, ainsi que la contribution des autres musiciens. … Je recommande [GLAD YOU’RE MINE] sans réserves.
ROBERT SACRE – SOUL BAG (FRANCE)


« L’année blues ne pouvait commencer mieux qu’avec la sortie de deux albums, en même temps, de la plus excitante formation de Chicago Blues actuel: Mississippi Heat. C’est l’album studio qui retient surtout l’attention avec une puissance rarement égalée dans l’émotion du genre. Un talent de Pierre Lacocque c’est incontestablement de fabriquer un répertoire dans la tradition du Chicago Blues sans jamais faire de la simulation ou du copiage, mais en composant véritablement une suite moderne du genre. Laissez-vous porter par les rythmes voluptueux d’un blues moderne dope par un gang démesure dont l’héritage est puise dans les années de braise du Chicago. Le plaisir parfait … »
CROSSROADS, VOL.39 (JAN 2006)

“Conduits par l’harmonica enchanteur du front man, les morceaux sont majoritairement de sa plume … Efficacité et tradition sont de sortie … Un ouvrage ample dans tous les sens du terme.”
FRED DELFORGE – LE ZICAZINE (www.zicazic.com, DEC 2005)

Jeff Pavero

Masters of the Blues
Mississippi Heat Has done it again. This cd puts together some masters of the blues to make a fantastic blues album. Harp playing vocals and guitar are all at the top of their form.

john corson

good not as good as "footprints"
Footprints & handyman were better, still love their sound.
Great job CD Baby, your on my A list
