Label: ALLIGATOR
Catalog: ALCD4980
Format: CD

Curtis Salgado has led his own soul/blues band for many years featuring himself singing and playing occasional harmonica but this record is mainly a duo record featuring himself on vocals and harp and his guitarist Alan Hager. Hager's playing is spellbinding, he's a master of many blues styles, including slide, but has managed to create his own unique style from these where he plays country blues licks on an electric guitar. Similarly Salgado's vocals are outstanding, very impassioned - probably reflecting the serious health issues he's suffered including heart problems and cancer - and his harp playing is a revelation as he plays not only his normal Chicago-style but also down-home country blues, listen to "I Want You by My Side" where he sounds like De Ford Bailey!
