Every time I come across a new collection by the Acoustic Blues-Duo, I try to get it simply because this duo performs some of the finest blues singing and performances found today in the world. This collection was recorded at Geluidstechniek, Amsterdam, NL.
The liner notes are in German. The vocals are in English. The blues entertainment is perfect and true blues.
There are 13 songs on this collection. Among these blues songs are found "Gamble Blues, Part I," "Delta Momma Blues," "Save Me Jesus," "Le Derviche Tourneur," "God Moves On The Water," "Lord Have Mercy," "Some Of These Days," "Beyond The Blues," "First Unto This Country," "B+O Moan," "Swanee River," "On Our Way," and "Gambler Blues, Part II."
I like listening to the blues when it is well-crafted and honest in its approach, and Acoustic Blues-Duo fits the bill perfectly. The guitar work, harmonica work, and other instruments give the blues an authentic sound, placing Acoustic Blues-Duo in the forefront of performing blues musicians.
For jazz lovers who enjoy excellent and memorable blues performances, GOD MOVES ON THE WATER is tops. Highly recommended.
