|Martin and His Rhythm Kings: "Some People Ruined It All" (Sweden 2007)|
Back to the artist's page
Martin kindly treated me to an advance listen to four of the five tracks featured here. So I eagerly opened my ears - and my notebook.
“Too Expensive”, a frenetic number with Elias and Anders on pile-driving rhythm, gives ample space to Stefan, guesting harpslinger. Wail on brother, wail on!
”Early In The Morning” is of course the heartrending classic,
here based on Martin’s reverberating slide, gliding slowly and sorrowfully
all over the place.
“Take Your Time” was so fresh out of the studio that it was
not yet available to me. Still, I have heard a previous version by Martin
and friends so I am fully prepared to vouch for it anyway!
Five songs, five musicians. Great stuff. Gimme five!
