never heard of steve wold aka seasick steve or his music until yesterday afternoon sometime when an email touting the man’s wares graced my inbox. admittedly, i didnt pay much attn until mr ninebullets, on twitter, stated that seasick steve was on his “drop everything and listen now” list. respecting the mans taste in music, i figured i’d venture forward. you can tell right off the bat, just by looking at his picture, that the guy has been around and surely has a few stories to tell. you can read more about him via his wiki page. what about his music you ask? not being familiar with any of his other work, i have nothing to judge it against, but so far his man from another time sounds exactly like that. it doesnt sound like it was made in this century. if jon spencer were a grizzled older man, it may sound like seasick steve. if you dig the likes or rl burnside, howlin wolf, william elliott whitmore, etc you should definitely dig this.
