Album review

Sonny Landreth - The Road We're On

Ace guitarist Landreth came to our attention two years ago via his superb playing on Shelby Lynne's Love, Shelby (a great record robbed of credibility by its ludicrous jailbait cover). His own album of southern blues and swamp rock is full of virtuoso playing, and he's part of a new white blues revival that includes the North Mississippi All-Stars and Doyle Bramhall. But he's going to need stronger songs to carry it off as a solo artist rather than a talented sideman.
