From his raspy-deep voice to his grooving guitar parts, longtime blues artist Dudley Harris delivers a completely authentic-sounding brand of old-school roadhouse blues. His themes are also spot-on for the genre: On “Tired Baby” he complains about his woman constantly disrespecting him, while “Love Me” is a get-down sexy come-on song, blues-style. This recording, which like the others has a live-in-studio vibe to it, features a bevy of backup singers who make their presence felt. “Cinnamon Roll”––on which the artist engages us fully with just his guitar and his voice––is another classic-sounding tune, with Harris praising a very special woman. Fans of Hooker, Wolf and Muddy will dig this artist.
