Another artist, another lockdown album. Like so many other musicians, Seasick Steve has been compelled to make the most of the pandemic, by recording. And as this gentleman is in the business of making the most visceral blues, this exercise suits him perfectly. Especially as, as the title suggests, Blues in Mono foregrounds the genre's foundations by paying tribute to the acoustic blues, the country blues of the first half of the twentieth century with a collection of covers of songs by masters like Mississippi Fred McDowell (Fred's Worried Blues), Charlie Patton (Moon Going Down), Willie Dixon (My Babe), Mississippi Joe Callicott (Laughing to Keep From Crying), K.C. Douglas (Whisky Headed Woman), Lightnin’ Hopkins (Buddy Brown) and, closer to our times, R.L. Burnside (Goin' Down South and Miss Maybell). Nevertheless, Steve slips four strong original compositions into the deck, such as Well, Well, Well, which is sure to delight his fans. Deprivation, despoliation, loneliness: there is no artifice here to distort the conversation between him and his guitar, which he carries on in his rough-hewn voice.  A back-to-the-roots record, picked up nicely on an old 1940s microphone, just to lend even more authenticity to the proceedings. Raw, brutal, lacking in surprises: but it warms the soul and the heart. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Eric Clapton's stocking filler

A Christmas album (“Happy Xmas”) including an EDM version of “Jingle Bells”, “Lonesome Christmas” or a bluesier “White Christmas”: sound like a good idea? Well, Eric Clapton's gone and done it. After all, if even Bob Dylan has ridden roughshod over tradition (on “Christmas in the Heart”), why not "God" himself? This is far from the first time that the English musician, coming up on 74 years of age, has taken a step back from more or less traditional Blues, but this is something else...

The Pioneers of Rock’n’Roll

Rock’n’roll isn’t dead. But you can count the pioneers of the genre who are still alive on two fingers: Jerry Lee Lewis and Wanda Jackson. They’re 84 and 82. Lewis was a wild rocker signed with Sun Records who made history by igniting his instrument and transforming church music, country and boogie-woogie into wicked rock'n'roll. Jackson was a country singer who had a brilliant career alongside Elvis. Going from Little Richard to Chuck Berry, not forgetting Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Bo Diddley, Bill Haley, Elvis Presley, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly and Hank Williams, Qobuz pays tribute to the precursors of rock.

Johnny Cash Behind Bars

Two legendary live albums released at the end of the sixties gave Johnny Cash’s career a huge boost and turned him into an international star. They were two records were unlike any others: they were recorded in prison. But how did the Man in Black find himself in such an unusual concert hall?
