Tribute to Legendary Songwriter and BluesmanNovember 22, 2014
You've probably never heard of Chris Smither, but you should have. He's a songwriter and a mostly acoustic blues guitarist who has a knack for writing a hook, humorous and otherwise. This collection is a solid entry point for his songs, as about 20 of his peers, friends and "students" take on highlights from his catalog and put their own spin on them. You may not recognize most of those names either - again, you should - but that really doesn't matter. These are terrific performances and reinterpretations of songs that deserve to be more widely heard. Check out "No Love Today" and "Killing the Blues" for an introduction to a couple of different sides of his songwriting. Then dig deep into his catalog because there's not a bad album in the bunch.
I would recommend this to a friend
