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.
NEW LEO BUD WELCH VIDEO PREVIEWS HIS FINAL ALBUM, THE ANGELS IN HEAVEN HAVE DONE SIGNED MY NAME. Dan Auerbach-produced collection, out March 8 on Easy Eye Records, was recorded just prior to Mississippi blues legend’s 2017 death.
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.”
