Eric Bibb: Spirit & The Blues
March 16, 2005
This is the first Eric Bibb recording I listened to, and it's still the best place to start IMO. The sound quality is first rate (even if it is recorded 'live', and is not recorded very loud, compared to multi-tracked rock recordings) and the quality of the songs and the playing is superb. As a ...
