Since he was a pre-teen, Grammy nominated and Juno Award winner Colin Linden has been a fan and a practitioner of the country blues. After waiting over 30 years, he finally felt ready to make a CD of the music he's loved all his life. Featuring both original compositions written by Linden over the course of his career and inspired versions of tunes written by some of the greats of the acoustic blues, on Easin' Back To Tennessee, Linden captures the spirit of his early blues heroes, but his approach transcends mimicry. Voice and guitar are placed front and centre, while subtle accompaniment from the ace rhythm section of Larry Taylor (Canned Heat, Tom Waits) and Stephen Hodges (Tom Waits) graces a handful of the tunes. From the Delta infused title track to the joyous "You Can't Get That Stuff No More" and the mournful "Champ," the listener is transported to the Deep South. Other standout tracks include "Broke Down Ending," "Tears Come Rolling Down" and "Nowhere To Go." Easin' Back To Tennessee is a must have for any blues fan. Standard Jewel Case.
