Veteran bluesman Eric Bibb releases new album

BLUES AND folk veteran Eric Bibb has a new album, 'Blues People', released on Dixiefrog Records. Read a review, "Bibb isn't about to go down to the crossroads and make some deal with the Devil. His version of folk-blues isn't about that sort of stuff. It's closer to gospel in tone, with a strong commitment to betterment and change, bereft of personal demons and filled instead with cultural ones. 'Blues People' has all of this on display. It's calm, serious, warm, thoughtful and wonderfully recorded (the album was produced by Glen Scott), and if it doesn't expand Bibb's musical template much, it isn't supposed to." CR
