Nobody writes in the idiom better than Roy Book Binder. He is a master player, singer, writer and teller of tales? true tales. He wrote THE PREACHER PICKED THE GUITAR and passed it on to me. It is an honor to include it here.
“Roy Book Binder has been recording East Coast blues since the '60s, and this new live set may be the best recorded work of his career, proving once again that the blues is an art that rewards the passing years. A student of both Pink Anderson and Gary Davis, Book Binder is one of the few revivalists whose mastery of the elegant East Coast blues style transcends the technical to embrace the form's vision. As always, the program leans heavily on interpretations of classic material from the genre, including tunes by Bayless Rose, Gary Davis, and Willie McTell; also included are bows to country and western pioneer Jimmie Rodgers (He's In The Jailhouse Now) and the Delta's master of double-entendre, Bo Carder (Let's Get Drunk Again).”
