ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
After ten and a half good rocking years, Mo'Indigo decided to call it a day at the end of 2007.

Like Rhythm and Blues Incorporated, The Yardbirds and The Animals before them, Mo'Indigo had become the band of choice for many American blues and soul artists touring the UK and Europe. They developed a strong 'Nashville connection', working with many of the greats like the late Roscoe Shelton, Charles Walker, Johnny Jones, Earl Gaines, Fred James, as well as forging an alliance with guys like Sherman Robertson and Lou Pride.

On this album the band dipped into the Nashville R&B songwriting well with their interpretation of both classic and contemporary songs including two great old Ted Jarrett songs as well as newer material by Rusty Russell & Tim Wagoner and Fred James. . Throw in a couple of songs from Memphis, a dash of Chicago, a few standards and some great new Harry Lang numbers (including a co-write with Sherman Robertson)and you have an album that is sure to please.

Harry Lang now has a new band The Catfish Kings www.thecatfishkings.com

Rare to find a CD of such quality.........
The British Blues bands of the mid-60s laid down standards of playing that many bands have since aspired to but never quite achieved. Now here comes a contender Mo’Indigo, with 11 tracks from the Blues and Soul academy of excellence. It is rare to find a CD of such quality songs this well performed from start to finish. The 5 piece band is as tight as you can get and their full sound is enhanced by the unmistakeable quality of Anthony Cooper’s playing on the Hammond organ. The superior harmonies on ‘Make It Rain’ along with the economy of Robin Carr’s guitar work tell you that this band are confident in their art. Harry Lang has an interesting voice and he can do no wrong with this collection of self penned and borrowed tracks, holding his own with a great cover of ‘When Something Is Wrong With My Baby’. The band show their mettle again on a stylish ‘Little Red Rooster’ making it one of the best versions I have heard. However, I think Harry and the band are truly at one on my favourite track the soulful ‘Never Found A Girl’. When I played the CD to some friends they all agreed that this is a band they would like to see live, which in my book confirms this Mo’Indigo album has really cut the mustard. Catch them if you can.

Widely popular band give their public the very best of albums
This widely popular band have succeeded in giving their public the very best of albums which include for the most part their own material. This album differs as the majority of tracks are not orginals but many another fine tune, song or arrangement they have acquired and produced whilst admirably forming the backing band to several celebrity artists who require a sound and accommodating group of musicians to tour the UK and continent. Mo' just 'fit the bill' and so they continue on a hectic round with these artists as well as their own itinerary of club/festival commitments. This busy schedule left little time for composing so they have borrowed from the best of the rest and given us 'Are We There Yet?' If you've seen Mo' around the last few years you've probably heard most of these songs when Earl Gaines/Fred James/Charles Walker/Roscoe Shelton performed them with the band. Fred James writes the summary notes, and the album's final track 'Leavin' This Old Town' written by FJ and RS is dedicated to the late Roscoe Shelton. The numbers are wide in choice and given the Mo' treatment. Harry on vocals and 2nd guitar forewarned me during a recent interview that here comes a covers album which is out of character for him - but it works, though his vocals differ greatly from the likes of Earl Gaines etc. Without doing too many comparisons with other singers (this) stands its own ground as a good CD. This is also the last album with keyboard supremo Anthony Cooper and crazy drummer Styx Nixon. Both have left recently and will be sadly missed. Thank goodness John Bulpitt (bass) is still there and so too is the brilliant Robin Carr (lead guitar). Tracks include 'My Babe', 'Trouble Every Day' and a very slowed down 'Downhome Blues' which I like very much. Also 'Make It Rain' which Charles Walker did so outstandingly on his recent tour with Mo'Indigo. It sounds good here too. I could go on and on here and sound more sycophantic than ever so I'll just add that the cover and sleeve notes are slick and as someone said to me when they saw the band member notes "They've left a space above each of their pictures - just enough to get an autograph in!" I expect they will sign plenty of these when out on the road gigging again this year! - Diane Sister Feelgood, Friday 08 October, 2004

Direct, well-played blues with passion and soul
Mo'Indigo are a choice band favoured as backing artists by several visiting blues and soul artists from across trhe pond. Here's a great line-up with some fine Hammond organ and piano from Anthony Cooper and the ebullient and confident vocals of Harry Lang. Spot on bass lines are supplied by John Bulpitt, solid drums from Styx Nixon and, of course, way above average guitar from Robin Carr. Their reading of 'Little Red Rooster' casts a nod not in the direction of Wolf, but Sam Cooke and Billy Preston.

They have a penchant for reworking some interesting material, such as 'Downhome Blues' and Al Greene's 'Never Found A Girl', and on this showing they promise much as a live act.

Direct, well-played blues with passion and soul. You can't ask for more
