“If there were such thing as a blues hit, this would be one. Love it.” – Bill Wax Bluesville, Sirius XM Satellite Radio / WPFW
“Great song, great groove, great message. Love the soulful guitar playing, Sol Roots brings something real to the table.” – Tim Duffy, President, Music Maker Relief Foundation.
"A powerful take on this traditional tune from one of the Mid-Atlantic's funkiest guitarists. Sol's arrangement tactfully captures the dark timbre of Phil Wiggins' original version, while at the same time fanning the flame with a renewed vigor. Sol Roots brings new light to the message in the lyrics with his smooth, soulful vocals. The inclusion of Wiggins on the recording really makes the song hit home and tug at the heartstrings." – Editor, Ragin’ Randy Entertainment
“The shape of blues to come....” - David Whiteis, Living Blues Magazine
“While many young musicians attempt to replicate the blues masters' art, Sol steers clear of imitation in favor of excavation and transport. Sounds carry beyond genre, beyond origin and often beyond the grave.” - Peter Cooper, Nashville TN
the album features samples of Guitar Gabriel, Cootie Starks, Mudcat, Robert Wolfman Belfour, Essie Mae Brooks, Cool John Ferguson, and more.
This Caravan of Songs was inspired by life's travels; from under a bridge in Spain, through the alleys of Amsterdam, the beaches of Puerto Rico, jungles of Brazil, and temples of South East Asia. from spontaneous creations to tedious studio recordings, Music helps each of us on this Enigmatic Journey. All of these songs come from "El Corazon"
