Album Notes
Tokyo Tramps are an anomaly, that’s for certain – three Japanese musicians playing down-home American blues in their own unmistakable style. The Tramps are serious aficionados of old blues masters like Muddy Waters, they dip into Cajun zydeco, and sprinkle in plain old American rock and roll.
On this fifth album, Tokyo Tramps reveals their sound of slide guitar. You will hear it on "Dance Of Kindred Spirit," "Everybody Wanna Be Loved," "I'll Give You All My Best," as well as 2 cover songs, "Highway 49" and "Rollin' And Tumblin'." Guitarist/vocalist Satoru Nakagawa shows himself at his best on the slow blues tune "Down To The River."
Bassist/vocalist Yukiko Fujii sings the title track "With These Hands" and "Nothing But The Blues" - songs about hopes and hardships, struggles and indomitable spirits - while Nakagawa sings "Holler And Shout" and "I'm A Roaring Lion."
"Light On The Inside" is definitely the highlight of this album. It has all the essence of Tramps' songwriting. Tight harmony, catchy guitar riffs, and hopes & encouragement,
A little R&B tune "Warm My Heart" is another highlight of this album - it's a simple love song.
Drummer Kosei Fukuyama adds his fresh beats on all tracks.

Recorded by Pete Weiss at Vardant Studio in Athens, VT, and Mastered by Jeff Lipton and Maria Rice at Peerless Mastering, Boston, MA.
