2019 kicks off with us unpacking a SIMPLE CASE OF THE BLUES.
When Rosie Flores laid the finished album on me in mid-2018, I was knocked out with what I heard…but had to be patient and wait until February 2019 to get it released.
I’d never heard Rosie playing the blues but after a few seconds of the opening track - Love Don’t Love Nobody - I knew that this was no sudden diversion for her. After hearing the whole album, I was ready to testify that the girl once known as the Rockabilly Filly has blues in her blood. Rosie’s long-time residence in Austin Texas had infused her already unique style and produced a real treat of an album.
With perfectly selected material, a great band and Charlie Sexton and Kenny Vaughn handling production, it was no surprise that every track hit the spot for me.
Now it’s your turn…so start unpacking.
