Web Site:


" Bassist Stephen Barry and guitarist Andrew Cowan have played together in the Stephen Barry Band – Montreal’s pre-eminent blues outfit – for more than three decades so their musical communication is finely tuned on these often-quiet and subtle versions of old and new acoustic blues and folk tunes. Each handles half the lead vocals. Barry shines on an interpretation of Dylan’s All Along the Watchtower that reclaims the oblique lyrics and haunting melody from Hendrix’s power-guitar dominated version, and on Mose Allison’s sly Don’t Forget to Smile. Cowan’s highlights include such timeless blues classics as Love In Vain, with nifty guitar work that owes more to Lonnie Johnson than to composer Robert Johnson, and a version of See See Rider that draws on Mississippi John Hurt’s influence. **** "
