Description

Eddie Clearwater, was born in Macon, Mississippi. An excellent guitarist, he is above all an outstanding singer with a beautifully harsh, teasing voice which he uses like an extra instrument. Making the most of this, he runs the emotional scales from desperation to exhuberance - sometimes broken with emotion other times bouyed up with a vibrant lust for life. Eddie Clean/rater's, mastery of the emotional understatement brings a renewed vitality to blues classics like ' Hoochie Coochie Man", "Rock Me Baby", "My Babe" and "Things I Used To Do", and masterly reveals the hidden beauty in less familiar numbers like "Black Night Is Falling" and "Chicago Dailey Blues". Eddie Clearwater, yet another great blues singer who could so easily have remained undiscovered outside his home town ... until now. Marcelle Morgantini.
