Gypsy is a one-man blues band and one-man-delta-blues wrecking crew who is no stranger to reviews on these shores. Along with this album, several of his previous albums, including “Revelation Blues” and “G Force” have been very much swooned over by Cross Rhythms magazine before it’s timely demise, and Rock of Ages continues the swooning in their place. Not only is this guy a fantastic musician, but he’s a REAL blues boy... His song “It’s A Dirty Job”, was even recorded by Queen of the blues Mary-Anne Brandon for Alligator Records, and was nominated for two Grammy Awards, so this gentleman is no stranger to the stage. His ability with the guitar to create short, simple and yet, truly listenable blues records is evident throughout his repertoire, and his passion, grit, authenticity, power and gravely voice combine to make this man the ultimate blues artist of this generation! This album, “Raw Word” is a ten-track album that features stomping blues tracks such as “Rainbow”, “Cause & Effect”, “Satan Never Sleeps” and “Can’t Cheat The Reaper”, it’s another great collection of tracks from a simply fantastic songwriter. The General is someone every mere mortal should hear before they meet their maker.
