'Lonesome Highway', is a true celebration of Billy Flynn's 60th trip around the sun. Many of the songs were shared with Jimmy Dawkins before his tragic passing in 2013. He offered his advice, and Flynn truly honors his mentor with this one. Sure to be a Delmark classic!
"The song isn't a response to any one thing. It’s just words I’ve had to live from time to time in my life. Words a lot of my neighbors are living right now. A lot of Americans are suffering."
Available March 24th, Classic Piedmont Blues offers an illuminating overview of the Piedmont style.
This release isn't for the Saturday night, boogie-woogie crowd. It's for those of us who still enjoy a glass of sweet tea on a Sunday afternoon. If you fit that category, you'll be doing yourself a disservice by not immediately purchasing this first-rate record.
