Farther Up On The Road

I’m in one of those moods… pensive and intro or retro ‘spective – not sure which, perhaps a bit of both.
So one can deduce from that head space – I’m processing something.
On a Monday no less… that can only set the tone for an interesting week ahead.
Regardless: my mood blends perfectly with the album I talked about in an old blog/stomping ground I once penned.
The Album is “A Tribute to Bobby” by Mick Hucknall.
And since many a blogger occasionally rehash old blog postings, today is no different for me.
Hope you enjoy!
August 2009 – I was at the airport waiting to come home.
I passed by the Virgin store and heard this amazing blusy/R&Bish/jazzified music and immediately stopped. I just had to find out who this was.
The clerk was this young bubbly lady… who was delighted that I loved what I heard and brought me to where this CD was. It is RARE that I will buy a CD simply on a brief 30 seconds of hearing just one song… but I have done it in the past… with very little regret.
And this one… absolute NO regret.
It’s freakin’ AMAZING!
Of course – you must be a fan of blues, old skool R&B with hints of smooth Louisianna jazz… and this will sooth your weary soul… Yeah baby!
Now what surprised me the most was… Hucknall.
The one and only Mick Hucknall.
I recognized the name but couldn’t place it.
Until I read the booklet.
He’s the lead singer of Simply Red.
Which is no wonder I love this CD.
I love the vibe of Simply Red.
