Bacon Blues Review

Back in the day's of the legendary Coyote Club in Wichita Kansas, I stumbled upon the Belairs. There was a man on guitar from Missouri named Mike Henderson who caught my attention. Henderson would move on to Nashville and during the next 30 + years became a three time Grammy nominee and multi-platinum songwriter and musician for a long list of artists; Mark Knopfler, Albert King, Hank Williams Jr., Johnny Lang, Guy Clark, John Hiatt, Sting, Martina McBride to name just a few. His records have included Americana, Blues and Bluegrass (critically acclaimed bluegrass band, The SteelDrivers). He stopped playing for a period to raise a family & songwriting. Kids grew up and now, Henderson has returned a new band and a new CD, "If You Think It's Hot Here...", which has quickly become my favorite album of the year! If you like your Blues flavored with superb slide guitar, Mighty fine keyboards, laid back harp and slow drawl of vocals, then you will fall in love with album as I have. I have chosen to not review each tune but ask you to get it for yourself, spend some time smiling and foot tapping, listening.
