Catalog: KTBA92652
Format: CD

Long underrated blues guitar veteran Larry McCray is finally getting the attention he deserves with the help of rock star producer team Joe Bonamassa and Josh Smith After growing up with his incredible talent, Joe and Josh felt it was time for the world to discover this gem from Bay City, Michigan. The new album features 11 original tracks (plus 1 cover) and showcases Larry's powerful, soulful vocals, brilliant guitar playing and amazing songwriting. Blues-rock stars Joe Bonamassa, Warren Haynes and Joanna Connor contribute their fiery guitar solos as guests.

"So one who, at the age of 61, almost already belongs to the veterans of the scene and in the brass-supported title song has put his life motto into sounds and words: 'The Blues is what we live for and the Blues is how we die.' He sings it literally from the body, plays a solid guitar to it and meanders 'as one of the very greats in the spirit of B.B. King, Luther Allison and Little Milton' (apt O-Ton Bonamassa) rousing through almost all varieties of the blues." (Good Times, April/May 2022) "... the traditionalist from the blue-collar state of Michigan impresses on the first album in seven years with a primal, juicy blues in the spirit of the three Kings (Albert, B.B. and Freddie). As soon as the shouter tells about his life with his rustic voice and a literally 'talking' guitar, it literally smells of sweat and tears." (Stereo, May 2022) "The award-winning 62-year-old displays an overwhelming, diverse musical energy on his newcomer, almost as he did on his bravura '90s debut, 'Ambition.'" (Audio, May 2022)
