Leo “Bud” Welch

Recensie: Leo Bud Welch – The Angels In Heaven Done Signed My Name

3 april 2019|Categories: Recensies|Tags: , |

De wegen zijn er slecht, het klimaat is slopend met veel hitte en overstromingen, het zorgstelsel is er bedroevend en de werkeloosheid groot. Al die ellende heeft echter nooit vat gekregen op datgene wat het mooiste is aan Mississippi. De blues, de Deltablues. Een prachtig voorbeeld hiervan is de onlangs door Easy Eye Sounds (Dan Auerbach`s label) uitgebrachte cd met het laatste materiaal van de in 2017 op 85-jarige overleden Leo "Bud" Welch. Al bij de eerste tonen weet je hoe het leven er voor deze man heeft uitgezien en welke tranen er in Mississippi zoal zijn weggeveegd. Schitterende Deltablues.

The final effort from legendary bluesman Leo “Bud” Welch, The Angels in Heaven Have Done Signed My Name, is due out March 8, 2019 via Dan Auerbach’s label, Easy Eye Sound. The ten-song posthumous album draws from the 25-30 songs that were recorded at Auerbach’s studio in Nashville with his band The Arcs, and offers a dynamic showcase of Welch’s gifts. “Working with Bud was a true blessing and I’ll never forget it,” Auerbach shares. “Bud taught us the songs that he’d been playing since he was a kid. He was so soulful. When he sang, you listened. And his guitar playing was steady as a rock.”

Leo Bud Welch is an 82-year old Mississippi-based Blues and Gospel musician who released his debut record earlier this year, taking the blues world by storm. After decades of hard work in the cotton fields and the woods, missed opportunities and gigs in local Juke Joints and churches, Leo’s very late international success is a story that needs to be told.
