Seasick Steve, our favorite 3 string playin waffle eatin’ bad ass supreme (though he calls himself simply a “song and dance man”), released his first single with us on Tuesday May 24th. Jack White produced and contributes drum skillz to Steve’s renditions of two Mississippi Fred McDowell classics, Write Me A Few Lines and Levee Camp Blues. The male/female vox on “Lines” captivate over a Zep-worthy rhythm section while the slow-burn slide of “Levee” is deep, down and dirgey like the best of Delta blues.
On June 7th we’ll be releasing Steve’s latest full length on LP and CD here in the States called You Can’t Teach An Old Dog New Tricks. The twelve-track album, recorded through the fall of 2010, was produced by The Dog hisself (Seasick Steve) and Henry James Wold and mixed by Vance Powell at Air Studios Studios in London.
The LP and 7” is available now on our website as a bundle package for just $20, and will be available digitally on May 31st. Click here to order.
