Blues Historian Review: Arthur Adams: Stomp The Floor

Arthur Adams, Stomp The Floor, is a great CD of classic southern soul blues. This release from Delta Grove was sent to me a few weeks ago for review. Adams has all the soul of those classic Malco artists from the 80s who kept the blues alive. It's that awesome blend of soul and blues that is very popular in the south, and should be all over the nation. Adams also can play some great jazz guitar as well. Around The Sun, is one of those smooth jazz cuts that you wouldn't necessarily hear on a blues CD. Perhaps my favorite cut is You Can't Win For Loosing. A great classic song of living the blues. I am going through some health issues right now. I was driving some 45 miles to a specialist, and trust me when you are driving a long ways to the doctor time seems to slow down. Arthur Adams You Can't Win For Loosing, helped me a great deal, and as I am dealing with this stuff, I keep letting the song help me through the day. As Arthur Adams says, You Can't Win For Loosing, but you gotta keep trying! Those are words to live by.

This is the best CD that I have heard this year. So put this on your Christmas list, or give it as a gift!
