Gypsy Carns, the shepherd of the blues, has begun its musical career in far away 1963, playing in small bars and in 1966 he has begun to record discs!
We are speaking therefore about a musician with over 40 years experience that in 1992 has decided to begin a solo career with the idea of preaching and the Christian evangelization with blues a lot rough and genuine.
“Raw Word” is of 2004, and in an age like our sounds like a deaf tone. The music of Gypsy is warm and crude, while the words make always gush out the word of God.
Of the more fascinating songs, we remember the most classic rhythm and allegro of `Satan Never Sleeps', where the acoustic guitar of our musician is the protagonist. Then the moving ‘Can't Cheat The Reaper', in which Gypsy also plays beautiful parts with his harmonica. The song is a lot in fashion in blues these days… the Death, the Harvester, comes to knock to our door but God is with us!! The instrumental parts of guitar and harmonica are full of love and passion for the most classic blues that you can think.
We cite again the optimal ‘Rainbow', dedicated to Michael Memphis Rimmel. The song is the opener of the CD and shows beautifully all the instruments of our musician. The text of the piece is linked to the Detection: “Our world’s comin' to a bitter end, / That lamb' s to Lion He comin' again. / Revelation about to unfold, / It don' t matter if you' king Young or old.”
After all a release for blues fanatics that although has limits can be appreciated.
